Program Description:

Free University of Brussels (ULB)Brussels Dome

The Free University of Brussels (Université libre de Bruxelles or ULB) has been committed to critical thinking and freedom since its foundation in 1834 shortly after Belgian independence when it was established to be ‘free’ from the State and the Church. 

The language dispute between Flemish and French that swept through Belgium in the 1960s and 70s caused a split of ULB into two distinct universities in 1970: the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Université libre de Bruxelles, which in English means there are two universities with the same name.  Despite the split, some facilities are still shared and in those cases the name “Brussels Free Universities (BFU)” is used. 

ULB has three campuses in and around Brussels, 24,000 students of whom nearly a third are international, and offers numerous programs across 13 faculties, schools and specialized institutes.  The University's Institute for European Studies is recognized as a 'Jean Monnet European Research Centre' for its work on European integration.
