Katholieke Universiteit Leuven





Established in 1425, K.U.Leuven is one of the oldest universities in the world. It is a charter member of the League of European Research Universities and its academic reputation attracts students from all over the world.

The university has set up a number of international academic programmes aimed both at Belgian and international students. Unlike the regular Dutch-language programmes, the international academic programmes are taught in English. Most of these programmes confer masterメs degrees: full bachelorメs degree programmes in English are offered only in the fields of theology and philosophy.

At present, K.U.Leuven caters to more than 31,000 students, around 12% of whom are international students from more than 120 nations.
