Bologna? KU Leuven Association!

The Bologna Declaration of 1999 dramatically altered the higher education landscape. Throughout Europe, university colleges and universities are developing a new BA/MA structure. This means you have the enormous advantage of being able to collect credits at different institutions in Belgium and abroad that lead to a diploma. Leuven University College is a member of the KU Leuven Association. This collaborative university system aims to offer clear added value for you as a student. For example, transferring to programmes within the association and abroad is now a smoother process.
