Succeed in your studies

ULB offers a number of activities and resources that can help you develop a successful strategy before or during your studies.

You can make the transition to higher education easier by attending preparatory courses, summer classes, and information and orientation sessions, even before you start your studies at ULB.

During your studies, many people at ULB are there specifically to help you succeed: support staff in each faculty, (inter-)faculty guidance counsellors, tutors, and experts in academic methodology.


The major aim of the ULB's Master in Medicine is to provide scientific and professional training in order to produce highly skilled doctors with a sense of integrity and a profound understanding of human considerations. Students learn about their future career through contact with experienced practitioners right from the outset. The course gives successful graduates legally recognised access to the profession and provides them with the necessary skills to allow them to seek work in a broad range of fields, such as :

  • Curative and preventive medicine

  • Hospital and clinical practice

  • Workplace and school medicine

  • Laboratory and industry research

The training takes into account the scientific, human and societal considerations of the medical profession, such as :

  • Scientific approach to medical problems based on the principles of evidence-based medicine

  • Techniques for communicating with patients and theirfamilies which respect the needs of the patient particularly in terms of decision-taking

  • Respect for legal and deontological rules, and ethical principles, etc.

  • The need to keep continuous training and constant updating of skills


  • Training with a particular focus on practice;

  • Wide range of hospitals in Brussels and Wallonia;

  • Possibility of work placements/internships (clinical or research) abroad, either in Europe or on one of the four other continents;

  • Opportunity to spend a year abroad at a European partner university (Erasmus exchange programme) with recognition of credits and grades;

  • Multidisciplinary campus including – among others - the Faculty of Medicine, the School of Public Health, the Institute of Human Movement Science and Library of Health Sciences and of course the Erasmus Teaching Hospital.
