Free University of Brussels (VUB) — public non-profit institution. It is located in Brussels, Belgium. The higher education institution was founded not so long ago — in 1971. As a member of European University Association (EUA), Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe (UNICA), Brussels University Alliance (BUA), VUB is actively working on developing the academic environment.
VUB works in several scientific areas and is waiting for new students.
The academic calendar at VUB is divided into two semesters, as in many other universities in Belgium. For convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. For local citizens, tuition fees at VUB start from 2,649 USD. International students pay a minimum of 1,537 USD per year. The educational institution helps with tuition fees through financial support programs. They are available to local and international students. Check the university website for up-to-date information on prices and scholarships.
Accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses are all things to consider before applying to university.
The campus of the educational institution is located in Brussels. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. The university students have access to the library. It is an integral part of learning. Students come here for educational literature or to do their homework. Student life at VUB is filled with intercultural activities, as not only local students study here, but also students from abroad. The exchange of knowledge and experience, networking and new acquaintances — all this is an integral part of studenthood.
Students are allowed to stay in the country for a year after graduation. To do this, you need to extend your student visa or apply for a job seeker visa. Look for more immigration options in our article.
