Promotion of success

At ULB, your success is our priority. Not only do academic studies involve an entirely new way to learn, but they also cover more material than secondary school, and require that you become self-disciplined. All these factors, and others, could make your work as a student somewhat more challenging that what you were used to.

Each Faculty has developed a number of tools to support you, and you will find – both within the Faculties and at the ULB level – services and people who can help you navigate the various ways in which the University can assist you in your studies:

  • an information and guidance service;
  • key people and Faculty coaches;
  • remedial courses;
  • guidance;
  • the Academic Methodology Centre (CMU);
  • online assignments to review what you have learned in secondary school;
  • information retrieval training (Sherpa project) and support for your research and projects (EUREKA service) in the ULB libraries (see below);
  • language tutoring at F9 Languages in Brussels (see below, ‘The Language Plan’);

Do not hesitate to contact your Faculty office or the InfOR-études service to learn more about these opportunities for support.
