Overall
Personal recommendation
The University should try to assist more in foreign student housing. Also if the University could arrange for Flemish language intergration courses to be included in the curriculum. Finally more communicative atmosphere be promoted between visiting students and host country students.

Overall
I loved studding here. All the teachers are well prepared.. some more than others. I was also working while studding if you do that, finishing the master's in 1 year is not possible. 

My dissertation professors were very helpful and accommodation to my schedule and I got to finish my thesis exactly in the field i wanted 

The cons would be that the campus is not very big and we could have some more activities for international students.

Course recommendations
Courses should maybe be more subject titile related and more professional oriented. This is because when one hears of an International course programme, one expects to fine every aspect of professionality in it and not more of general knowledge.

Personal recommendation
The university lacks some things I consider basic to a place of higher learning, but overall it was a good experience. The student to teacher ratio allowed for individual attention, which is something I did not experience at my home university.

ABOUT
VUB is a medium-sized university, with two campuses. The main campus is in Etterbeek: Campus Oefenplein. Its name can be translated as "exercise ground", which still refers to the time when this area belonged to the state police. Most faculties are located here. The Campus offers many facilities, and it is the livelier one of the VUB campuses. It is situated close to the heart of Brussels. The other campus is the Campus Jette, where the facultity of medecine and pharmacy resides, next to the Academic Hospital. The Graduate program "Human Ecology" is also based on Jette Campus.

As a Flemish university the VUB attracts many students from all over Flanders and introduces them to bilingual Brussels, and also is the largest Flemish employer within the Brussels region. The VUB therefore plays a key role with regard to the Flemish presence in Brussels.
