Social and financial support

A year of university study is quite a financial investment. There are various ways to finance it, including tuition fee and housing rental discounts, French Community of Belgium study grants and UCL financial aid.

The Student Support Service includes 12 social workers at five UCL sites. They answer students’ questions and help them with administrative procedures and financial aid applications.

Each year:

More than 3,000 UCL students receive a French Community of Belgium study grant;

1,500 students receive a UCL scholarship;

700 students are given priority for UCL housing;

and €2.5 million in UCL financial aid is provided.
