Classes generally start the beginning of February and run through the middle of May. Classes are then followed by and exam period that lasts until the middle of June. Exact program dates will be provided in the program handbook that you will receive after acceptance.

As to vacances de printemps, are there two weeks in the Spring free for students with no classes?

This break is called either Easter Break (vacances de Pâques) or Spring Break (vacances de printemps). There are no classes organized. 

As to période d'évaluation, when will the students take their exams?

There is an exam timetable that is published ten days before exams begin. This exam timetable is posted on the extranet as well as in the school.  

 When will students end their classes and exams?  When can they plan to come back?

Exchange students can go back once they have finished their exams. In case they have to make arrangements to change the dates of the exams, ISTI-Cooremans and Webster University may coordinate the matter such that the exams may be taken via Skype or at Webster exams with a proctor, for instance.

Does ISTI-Cooremans arrange excursions?

There's usually a one-day excursion offered by ISTI-Cooremans to exchange students a few days after their arrival in Brussels. This excursion is free and not mandatory. Students sign up if they wish to take part.
