Study in Belgium

There are many reasons to want to study in Belgium: world-renowned universities, excellent opportunities for international networking, famously multicultural and multilingual cities, a host of regional cuisines and specialties, beautiful countryside, overall high quality of life, and, of course, those fantastic Belgian waffles.

An established hub for international politics, Belgium’s capital Brussels has even more ambassadors and journalists than Washington DC, and is the headquarters of many international businesses and organizations. As you’d expect, Belgium’s resident population is also highly international, with around a quarter of the population of 11 million known as ‘new Belgians’ – those from other countries, and their descendants, who have become permanent citizens.

Likewise, many universities in Belgium have a strong international outlook and composition, as well as a strong position in the international rankings. A total of seven universities in Belgium are featured in the 2013/14 QS World University Rankings®, all within the global top 300 and six within the top 200. The highest ranked Belgian university is the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, currently placing at 77th in the world.
