Antwerp Maritime Academy

The Antwerp Maritime Academy (AMA) is the only college in Belgium offering training in Nautical Sciences and Marine Engineering.

The Nautical Sciences training consists of two cycles:

The Marine Engineering training consists of one cycle: The courses are taught in Dutch and French. However, in the Master's program in Nautical Sciences, many courses are taught in English. Apart from its function as a training centre, the AMA plays an active role in scientific research and provides services to third parties. The Antwerp Maritime Academy is a participating member of the European Erasmus Lifelong Learning Program. It also plays an active role in international projects outside of Europe where its know-how can be used.


Antwerp, mediaeval and modern

Antwerp - home to Rubens, international diamond centre, capital of fashion, world port and riverside haven - is a bustling convivial city which offers the visitor an irresistible mixture of culture and commerce. Visit Antwerp's picturesque mediaeval centre, browse round the city's renowned shops, malls and boutiques, or simply drink in the welcoming and multicultural atmosphere of Flanders's greatest city.

Antwerp, maritime metropolis

Antwerp's location at the head of a dense network of rivers and canals, roads and railways provides it with fast connections to the European hinterland. This has helped to render the Port of Antwerp the second largest port in Europe. It is ranked amongst the ten largest ports worldwide and also as the most productive.

How to get there

By public transportation

Most trains to Antwerp arrive at the Central Station, in the center of the city. Train schedules can be consulted on the website of the national railway company, NMBS/SNCB, where you can also buy and print your train tickets.

Buses 763 and 764 depart at the Rooseveltplaats (300 m from the Central Station) and have a stop near the school. In the morning these buses frequently drive towards the school and in the afternoon mainly towards the city. Various buses are stopping frequently at the corner of Rijnkaai and Londenstraat (see indication on map), at about 1500 m from the school.
