Université Libre de Bruxelles
UP has definitely exceeded my expectations: professors were highly professional, but also close to students, administration was always helpful and kind, I never felt I could never have any help. Plus, the welcome week organized for the International students could not have been better (this is something we don’t even have in my home university). I definitely think I chose the right university to spend a semester.
Regarding my academic experience, I would recommend to pick the non-compulsory courses, as they are less hard than the optional courses. Contrary to my home university, teachers asked for different homework/essays/group projects each week, so it is more a continuous assessment which is carried on.
