Why Belgium?

There are many reasons 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. Aside from its gorgeous historic monuments, castles, cobblestone architecture, beautiful art work, delectable food (including chocolate) and festivals, there are so many more draws to this European country.

Not only does Belgium have three native languages, but the people there are also quite fluent in English (making the transition easy for many people who speak English as a first or second language). Belgians are also known to be very friendly - which is always a huge plus when you are just arriving somewhere new! Fun facts set aside, Belgium is widely known as the heart of Europe and a hub for international networking. It is located in one of the most densely populated areas in the world, according to TopStudyBelgium.be. International students in Belgium will certainly be enriched with a well-rounded and cultured educational experience.

Higher Education in Belgium

Many universities in Belgium have a strong international outlook and composition, as well as a strong position in the international rankings. A total of eight universities in Belgium are featured in the QS World University Rankings 2018, all but one of which is ranked within the global top 350.

Higher education in Belgium is generally categorized into two groups, split along the lines of the country’s two main language communities: the Flemish (a variety of Dutch) community and the French community. Alongside Dutch and French, Germany is also an official language of the country, though spoken by a far smaller percentage of the population. German-speaking students typically attend a university in the French community, or travel to study in Germany. While French and Dutch are the standard languages of teaching, there are also many international programs taught in English.

Scholarships

Unknown to many, there are a number of scholarship programs in Belgium for international students specifically for students from developing countries. The Belgian Government, in their efforts towards development cooperation, offers scholarships to foreign students wishing to pursue further studies in Belgium. Belgian Universities have been included in the top 100 World Universities and has scholarship programs for international students as well.
