Erasmus +

Thank you for visiting our website and for exploring the Erasmus+ opportunities at the Antwerp Maritime Academy. Our academy, known in Dutch as the “Hogere Zeevaartschool” (HZS), offers Bachelor and Master programmes in Nautical Sciences, and Bachelor programmes in Marine Engineering. Our academy is located in Antwerp, only 50 km from Brussels.

Erasmus +



Antwerp, a city with about half a million inhabitants, is of major importance to the economic and cultural life in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium. The river Scheldt has played a fundamental role in the development of the city. The port of Antwerp is one of the largest in the world, and gives the city its international dimension. Antwerp citizens speak Dutch but most of them do understand and speak English. Take a look at a promotional video of the city of Antwerp.

What a network

Those who graduate here do not only have a diploma in their hands. You are also part of a strong network of maritime companies and service providers where your diploma opens doors. Here, but also abroad. That is a priceless advantage that will pay off for a lifetime.
