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.


Fulfil your personal ambitions by developing your skills in legal reasoning (e.g.: analysing a legal problem and finding an appropriate solution), your logical reasoning, your critical and analytical ability. At the end of your bachelor’s course, you will have a solid grounding in law and a general grounding in human sciences.

Whether you are interested in a legal career or not, your studies will help you become independent individuals since our law courses are people-centred and provide you with many opportunities for self-fulfilment (especially: learning how to think for yourself and learning the best research methods).

You have at your disposal:
