Going abroad is an exciting adventure and not one without a few challenges at the start. Therefore, we want to give you as many opportunities as possible to get in touch with local students.

These students are able to give you an insider look on student life in Belgium and share some secret tips and tricks with you:

  • How are classes and exams organised at UCLL?
  • What are nice places to visit in Belgium?
  • How do I use public transport?
  • What are the best places to party?
