Throughout the day there will be campus explorations, dorm visits and information about housing, study guidance and student finance.

Growing range of English-language programmes

With 100,000 students, Brussels is the largest student city in the country. VUB accounts for almost 20% of the capital’s student population, with 19,310, of whom 24% are international students. The university is therefore committed to offering a growing range of English-language programmes, which are also appreciated by Belgian students. VUB offers three English-language bachelors, 33 English-language masters and 13 English-language postgraduate courses. During the information day, sessions will be held on the following English-language programmes:

  • Bachelor in business economics
  • Bachelor in social sciences
  • Multilingual master of arts in linguistics and literary studies
  • and the new multilingual bachelor of arts in linguistics and literary studies

New programmes

VUB will also start two new programmes next academic year: the first bachelor of artificial intelligence in Belgium and the multilingual bachelor of linguistics and literary studies. In the latter, students choose two to four languages from a total of seven.


On the VUB campus in Etterbeek, various group information sessions lasting 1.5 hours take place between 9.00 and 17.00. The university also provides campus explorations and services such as housing, study guidance and study financing will answer visitors’ questions. In addition, the day offers students an excellent opportunity to take a look around the dorms. It’s also a chance to find extensive information on the courses and bridging programmes or to take a test in chemistry, physics or maths. You can also visit FabLab Brussels, the largest fab lab in the city, to see what future students in industrial sciences can expect. For the medical programmes, as well as rehabilitation sciences and physiotherapy, students are welcomed at the campus in Jette. The next info day will be held on 24 April.

About Press - Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Vrije Universiteit Brussel is an internationally oriented university in Brussels, the heart of Europe. By providing excellent research and education on a human scale, VUB wants to make an active and committed contribution to a better society.

The World Needs You

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel assumes its scientific and social responsibility with love and decisiveness. That’s why VUB launched the platform De Wereld Heeft Je Nodig – The World Needs You, which brings together ideas, actions and projects based on six Ps. The first P stands for People, because that’s what it’s all about: giving people equal opportunities, prosperity, welfare, respect. Peace is about fighting injustice, big and small, in the world. Prosperity combats poverty and inequality. Planet stands for actions on biodiversity, climate, air quality, animal rights... With Partnership, VUB is looking for joint actions to make the world a better place. The sixth and last P is for Poincaré, the French philosopher Henri Poincaré, from whom VUB derives its motto that thinking should submit to nothing except the facts themselves. VUB is an ‘urban engaged university’, strongly anchored in Brussels and Europe and working according to the principles of free research.
