Internationalisation is one of the top priorities in the strategic plan of VUB. VUB takes the lead in recruiting high-level international students and professors by offering an attractive international and English taught education portfolio.

All educational and research programmes have one common objective: sustainable innovation.

  • manage quite a number of scholarship programmes with grants available to domestic and international students, based on a number of criteria.
  • offer support in the design and implementation of selected international projects, in collaboration with VUB-academics and international partners or larger consortia.
  • provide students of all nationalities with information on university life and facilitates their integration by organizing a wide range of cultural, social and sports activities, in collaboration with student associations.
