ULB receives more than 450 Erasmus students every year!

Please note that our University does not accept free movers. 

Here are the three types of stays that are accepted at ULB within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme:

Stay for studies

  • Carrying out a mobility period at ULB as an Erasmus exchange student is only possible if an Erasmus+ agreement has been signed in the study field of the student, and on the basis of a proposed learning agreement.

  • If you wish to come at ULB for an exchange stay, please ask at the International service of your University if an Erasmus+ contract in your study's field, has already been signed with ULB.

Stay for Traineeship without courses

  • Your university is entitled to participate to the Erasmus "Student Mobility for Placement" sub-program and awarded you an Erasmus SMP grant.

  • This means you'll have then to spend at least two months in a row in one of our labs under the supervision of an ULB Promoter. Please note that we will not be able to accept you unless a Professor from ULB sends us his/her formal authorization to supervise your academic activities in his/her unit up until 6 weeks before the foreseen start date of your traineeship.

Stay for Traineeship + Courses

  • Students who, during their stay at the ULB, will be writing their dissertation or thesis or doing their end-of-study project in addition to their courses must choose their subject or laboratory before arriving and within our deadlines, i.e. before 1stJune (1st semester) or 1st October (2nd semester).

  • Please communicate to us in writing the agreement of a professor (sponsor) from the ULB Faculty concerned and a co-sponsor from their home university. Without such prior agreement, they cannot be admitted to the ULB.

  • Please note that you are responsible of finding the ULB Professor willing to supervize these academic activities.
