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.

I would like to say that my overall experience as a student at teh VUB was not bad, I made a series of good friends and had some really interesting courses too. My advice to new commers is that they should be adequiately prepared to start in a new culture. For the organisers of the different courses, it will be very interesting to that students do more of practivcal work than theory as most student have the visions of getting to learn more about what they had always known from lectures back in developing countries. Every course should be met by organisation of trips and visits to sites, factories, Industries, Laboratories if the need be.

Overall
VUB is a not very big but cosy university, we genuinely think and hope VUB would become one of the Top uni of the world. 
VUB has many worthy study majors, which are quite mature in advanced professor teaching method and supplement from school,  and some major is upgrading and needs change to a level of good one.

Overall
It has been an amazing experience being a student of the VUB. Coming from South Africa, it's been interesting seeing how things are so different than back home. It's not the simplest adaptation but study guidance centre offers help in transitioning into the system and the school environment.
