ITM is centrally located

Your classes take place in the main building of ITM (on the corner of the Nationalestraat and the Kronenburgstraat) and Campus Rochus (in the Sint-Rochusstraat).

They are just a stone’s throw from the Groenplaats, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts (Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten) and the river Scheldt.

Don’t waste a moment!

Antwerp fascinates anyone when they first see it. You’ll arrive at one of the most beautiful train stations in the world. You’ll be able to go wherever you want with the public transport network of buses and trams, whether it's the theatre, cinema or concert hall.

These destinations all contribute to the reason why the ‘city of Rubens’ is synonymous with culture.

Antwerp is a global city

Studying by the river Scheldt means sampling food from the global kitchen. And you’ll do that in the epicentre of diamond trade in the world, a short stroll away from the second largest port of Europe and surrounded by trend-setting fashion designers. 

In short: there is no better city to study than Antwerp!

Travelling to Antwerp
