Internationalisation has been a target for the Louvain School of Engineering (EPL) for some time. These past years, however, it has become a priority in which the faculty is willing to invest time and resources. The International Lhoist Berghmans Innovation Chair launched on January 1st 2014 and renewed in January 2018 with the support of Fondation Louvain is a significant contribution to the internationalisation strategy of the school. It is in fact the largest sponsorship of EPL’s history.
The global objective of the Chair is the development of an ambitious international programme which will attract and educate highly talented Belgian and international students and prepare them to be confronted to industrial competition in international environments.
On a yearly basis, Louvain School of Engineering (EPL) welcomes approximately 90 to 100 international students whilst approximately the same number of its students go abroad for an exchange programme or other international mobility programmes across the globe. In the meantime, our school welcomes degree-seeking international students who will come and study part of their engineering curriculum, mostly at Master and PhD level.
This section is meant for international students who have chosen to come and study at EPL. They will find here all the information about study programmes, practical information about student life on the Louvain-la-Neuve campus and administrative process for admission and enrolment.
