Higher education

Get a degree in a safe and green environment

Limburg is not the usual busy high-stress big-city environment you so often find near the universities. No. Here you can find campuses which are only a bicycle ride away from green fields and inviting rural safe villages.

In the last years we have seen a growth in the number of directions we offer on bachelors and masters level. We also see the number of foreign students and professors increasing which shows once again our openness for foreign talent.

Support for International Students
For international students to become more quickly integrated into Belgium society, both during their studies and thereafter, the driving force needed to promote appropriate and flexible job search prospects is crucial. This can be achieved by creating Human Resources/Internationalization Desk/Centre specializing in job listing provision through enabling environment with the Student Council AUHL (Limburg University-Hogescholen Association).
