Fine chocolates, delectable waffles, assortment of beers, glitzy diamonds, and one could go on about the infinite things that describe and make up Belgium. Nestled amongst France, Germany, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands, Belgium is rich in history, culture, and earthly beauty. Comprised of a varied landscape, which includes rivers and gorges, contrasted by endless rolling plains and long stretches of wide, sandy beaches, Belgium is the nature lover's fantasies come true.
After having been the fief of Germanic, Spanish, Austrian, French and Dutch powers down the centuries, in 1830 Belgium was recognised as an independent state. Stamped by a tradition of openness, its inhabitants’ mother tongue can be any of the three official languages: French, Dutch or German.
It is hardly surprising therefore that Brussels, the capital of Belgium, should have been chosen as the capital of Europe. Today, it has grown into an extraordinary city, where the European institutions rub shoulders with the major international organisations. While in the capital, Brussels, one can visit important political institutions like NATO, the European Commission, the European Council.
While Belgium is known for its numerous exported goods, it is also recognized for its open-minded and foreigner-friendly attitude.

For Belgian and European students, higher education is financed to a very large extent by the public authorities.
Every year, students must pay a registration fee. The amount of this fee varies depending on the higher education establishment and the type of programme followed.
For example, for the academic year 2008-2009, the registration fee for Belgian and EU students to register with a university was € 811.00.
On top of the usual fees, students from outside the European Union will be required to pay additional annual fees. To find out the exact amount, please contact the university in question.
To these amounts must be added a specific fee for non-EU nationals whose parents are not resident in Belgium. The sum amounts to around € 1,500.00 for the first cycle and € 2,000.00 for the second and third cycles.
