Founded in 1425, the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) has been a centre of learning for almost six centuries. Today, it is Belgium’s largest and highest-ranked university as well as one of the oldest and most renowned universities in Europe. As a leading European research university and co-founder of the League of European Research Universities (LERU), KU Leuven offers a wide variety of programmes in English. These programmes are supported by high-quality inter-disciplinary research carried out at both the university and its internationally acclaimed hospitals. Boasting an outstanding central location in the heart of Europe, KU Leuven offers a truly international experience, high-quality education, world-class research, and cutting edge innovation.
KU Leuven is a university with more than 56 000 students, of whom more than 9 000 international students. As a student or researcher you will discover that Belgium is a country full of surprising contrasts. It is a place rich in art, history, and architecture. You are treated to its local specialties in a friendly atmosphere. The country has much to offer to students: a cosmopolitan lifestyle, great sport facilities, libraries, bookshops, restaurants, cafés, and a dynamic cultural scene. It is also an ideal base for exploring the rest of Europe. London, Paris, Cologne, and Amsterdam are all a proverbial stone’s throw away from Belgium, and can easily be reached by train and (budget) air travel. Belgium is the headquarters of many international organisations and companies and the beating heart of the European Union. Belgium has three official languages – Dutch, French, and German – but English is rapidly becoming the business lingua franca. In daily life, as well, you’ll find nearly everyone is able to communicate in English. With a standard of living amongst the highest in the world, Belgians benefit from universal health-care, social security coverage, and an excellent education system. As an international guest, you might find Belgians initially reserved – an impression that will only last until your first visit to a Belgian home, where you will be warmly welcomed and well fed.
