Institutional context

Two institutions, one moving mind


UC Leuven-Limburg is the result of a partnership between two university colleges: UC Leuven and UC Limburg.  Despite being part of the same organisation, there are still some differences between the institutions.

It is important that you select the correct university college (UC Leuven or UC Limburg) as each institution has its own programmes and campuses.

Please contact the international coordinator at your home institution if you are not sure whether you are going to study at:


  • UC Leuven - Erasmus code B LEUVEN18  
    (including former Group T Teacher Education and International Educating Class)


  • UC  Limburg - Erasmus code B  HASSELT20


The link to nominate students at UCLL will be sent out to all our partner institutions on a regular basis.

In case you would not have received our nomination link(s), please let us know via international [at] (subject: Nomination%20link%20request, body: Dear partner%0d%0a%0d%0aPlease send us the link to nominate students at UC Leuven (B LEUVEN18) or UC Limburg (B HASSELT20).)

                                        2022-2023 Application open

Since 2020 we started working with an online nomination and application tool: Mobility-Online. 

Students from partner institutions will be nominated by their International Office and will have to complete their application in Mobility-Online.

If you want to take courses at UCLL, independent of any agreement with your home institution, you can register as a free mover.  


After being nominated by your home institution, you will receive an email with an link to register and apply in Mobility-Online.  You are required to upload the following documents in Mobility-Online:

  • a motivational letter why you want to come and study at UC Leuven-Limburg
  • your curriculum
  • a picture
  • your most recent report card at your home institution

Then, an International Officer of UCLL will accept or reject your application.

If accepted, you will be asked to complete your Learning Agreement for Study or Traineeship  and have it signed by your home institution coordinator.

Please consult our Common Exchange Programmes and our Faculty Exchange Programmes to learn more about courses offered.
