Choosing courses


Choosing your courses and other learning activities must be done in close consultation with your academic tutor at the home university. Whether you are looking for equivalent or complementary courses, the overall objective should be the coherence of the study period at UCLouvain with the degree programme at your home university.

All the courses available at UCLouvain are published on the website. Both the individual course descriptions as well as the details on Bachelor and Master degrees are available in French and English.
There are various ways to gain access to this rich source of information throught the UCL search engine :

  • you may search by the title of the course, or by keywords, or by the programme code;
  • alternatively, and to approach the course description in the context of the UCLouvain degree programme of which it forms part, you can consult the UCLouvain study programme.

When making a choice, you should pay careful attention to certain practical points listed in the course description, such as the year(s), the semester(s) and the language of instruction.

As soon as your application has been accepted by your home university, please do not hesitate to contact the UCLouvain faculty exchange coordinator for help and advice.
