Catholic University of Leuven

The Catholic University of Leuven (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven or KU Leuven) has been located in the centre of historic Leuven since its beginning in 1425. It is the oldest university in Belgium and the oldest Roman Catholic university still in existence, founded by Pope Martin V.  Today it has a population of over 55,000 students, of whom almost half are undergraduate students.

In addition to its main campus in Leuven, the University has other campuses in Kortrijk, Antwerp, Ghent, Bruges, Ostend, Geel, Diepenbeek, Aalst, Sint-Katelijne-Waver, and in Belgium's capital Brussels.  The Faculty of Economics and Business teaches in English at Leuven, Antwerp and Brussels while the Faculty of Law teaches exchange students at the Leuven campus. Many of the University's graduate programs are taught in English.

Did you know...

KU Leuven was originally the Dutch-speaking half of the Catholic University of Leuven, which was split in 1968 to the present day KU Leuven and its French-speaking counterpart, Université catholique de Louvain. The two universities are distinct and should not be confused with each other.
