I wish I had known...
Is always good to stick around with other people on the weekends, otherwise you'll have this "homesick" feeling...actually, you will get it anyways: just start working on that idea before you travel, it makes it easier to know you're expecting this than rather just have that feeling out of the blue.

Personal recommendation
Leuven rocks in everysense. Comparing it to my previous international experience (at the Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School in Gent, Belgium) I can say that the student atmosphere is by far thousand times better. But, eventhough the city can offer everything, is still quite small. In that sense I think Gent is a better place to live, but Leuven a better place to interact with other international students and with the university itself.

I've worked and studied at the same time and been able to handle it perfectly. You should do it to...is a great way to make money to pay for expenses/travels/night outs, etc. For foreign students: you can apply for a work permit C at the city hall which allows you to work as a student 20 hours a week.

Living in Belgium is difficult for the weather and very easy for social relations. Leuven is the ideal town for students, it seems to have beeen created for students and for making their life full of interests and easier, but be careful about those who try to exploit you!

If I'd known it was such a great experience I might have considered applying for one whole year instead of one semester only.

All in all it was an amazing experience! The greatest problem was finding a house that would stand up to my expectations.

The culture, the way of life, the industry, so that I had not spent time to adjust to local situations. For instance, I did not even know the meaning of a "Dutch Treat" when I went there!

Kepp up your vision and mission for the students. I really love to go back, perhaps, as a guest lecturer, or an alumnus who had terrific experience at Leuven!

Adjust quickly to the quality of life. Again, let me sy, THINK BELGIAN! Have more local friends as you can. They can help you during your stay at KUL. Do not hesitate to expose your innocence with the culture. They love it if you know their culture.
