Practical Information

In the UCL International section, you will find some general and useful practical information for the international students.  

Beside this general information, Louvain School of Engineering has developped some more specific information related to our school. Throughout this section, you will find the most relevant information for international students organizing their arrival in Louvain-la-Neuve:

To make things easier for you, we have also gathered all the above information in a single Handbook for the international student at EPL.

As a general rule, we recommend incoming international students at EPL to arrive at the latest 2-3 working days before the start of courses for Fall and Spring Semesters. This will allow them to complete all their administrative and logistics steps, in order to be fully operational when courses begin. Furthermore, EPL organizes some walk-in sessions during those days, to provide information and assistance on those administrative and logistics matters.

Check the Academic Calendar.

During our welcome sessions for international students at EPL in September and February, some presentations are made by students associations BEST, ESN and Kot Erasmus. You can find them here:
Presentation BEST (Board of European Students of Technology)
Presentation ESN (Erasmus Student Network)
Presentation Kot Erasmus

You can also find the latest presentations given by the international mobility team below (available next September):
- EPL general presentation
- Exchange students presentation
- Joint degree students presentation

If you need some help or other information, please don't hesitate to contact the CGEI (Coordination Générale des Etudiants Internationaux - General Coordination of International Students). They will be more than happy to help you.
