The University of Louvain (UCL) is currently accepting applications for Undergraduate, Masters and PhD Scholarships for students from Developing countries to study in Belgium. Recipients receive a UCL scholarship that includes support for no more than 36 months and, if necessary, one or more round-trip airline tickets between the international airport nearest to the recipient’s home country residence and Brussels Airport.
UCL carries out three missions: education, research and serving society. UCL is a stabilizing force in an uncertain world. It prioritizes universal access to high-quality education and makes innovation the governing principle of its activities, in teaching as much as in research. It creates synergies between its involvement in the regional development and its international influence, enabling them to fuel each other. Its research reveals the complexity and provides perspective in a world that emphasizes the here and now.
Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
