At UCLL, we know there's more to studying abroad than innovative, interactive education methods and obtaining a degree which will impress any future employer. Our moving minds also  get acces to top-notch culture, sports and travel opportunities.  The best part? You'll feel right at home: we've got your back from visa guidance to buddies. Read more below!

What is a degree programme?



1 - 3 years

started and completed at the same educational institution

upon successful completion of the full programme, you will obtain a degree of that institution. If you opt for a degree   programme at UCLL, you will graduate with a UCLL degree, rather that of any other institution.

Degree programmes therefore cannot be part of another programme or course of study (in either Belgium or another country).



For a short course after which you will obtain a certification of participation rather than a degree, check our short programmes.

If you are looking for a one-semester stay within another course of study in another teaching institution, various exchange programmes are awaiting you.

what is an exchange programme?

the essentials of an exchange programme


 a three- to six-month study

allows you to do a part of your studies or internship abroad

 therefore can only be part of another programme or course of study (in either Belgium or another country). The European version of this is called ‘Erasmus’.

When you have obtained all necessary credits to graduate, you return to your home educational facility and obtain a degree of your original teaching institution rather than that of the one you stayed with abroad..


not what you were looking for?

  •  short course after which you will obtain a certification rather than credits imbedded in another programme, check our short programmes.
  • If you are looking for year programmes, to obtain a (first or second) full bachelor’s degree, our Bachelor programmes await you.
  • If it is a one-year or one-semester programmes, to obtain an additional degree at UCLL after already having obtained your first bachelor’s degree that you seek, we can recommend our Continuing Education Programmes.
