Located at the heart of Europe, the ULB has always been very involved in student mobility. Its campuses are among the most international in Europe, with over 30% of students coming from abroad (16% Europeans). Also, nearly 20% of the ULB’s scientific and academic staff and 50% of PhD candidates are foreign nationals. Students can apply for research projects in Chemistry, Computer Science, Urban Studies, Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology, and more!. Check out their promotional video.
