The Antwerp Maritime Academy is participating in the Erasmus + programme. The Erasmus + programme aims to support actions in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport for the period 2014-2020.  The programme gives opportunities to students and staff to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability.





The Antwerp Maritime Academy is also participating in other international projects where its know-how can be used to develop maritime education and training.

In 2017 13 Flemish University Colleges - including the Antwerp Maritime Academy - joined forces within the framework of the ‘Global Minds’- programme (VLIR-UOS). With the Global Minds programme (travel grants, research projects) the Antwerp Maritime Academy wants to raise awareness for the 'Global South' among students, staff and professors.


The Antwerp Maritime Academy was Leading Partner in two projects aimed at establishing maritime education and training by setting up a Maritime Navigation Department as a part of the future Cambodia Maritime Academy.

In 2003 the first project was successfully concluded. It examined the use of distance learning, and more particularly e-learning. The project was sponsored by the European Commission, under its Asia IT&C programme.
 More information on this project can be found here: E-tools for Off Shore Training of Maritime Personnel.

The second project, sponsored by the Asia-Link programme of the European Commission, was started in September 2004 and ended on 31 August 2007.
 The project involved the training of Cambodian instructors, the development of a curriculum and teaching methodology, the operational set-up of a navigation department, etc.
