Brussels: the true heart of Europe

Brussels City

City Sights

If ever a city could claim split personality, it’s Brussels, according to the Lonely Planet: "French versus Flemish, historic versus hip, bizarre versus boring. Full of contrasts, contradictions and intrigue, this is a multicultural equation that goes much deeper than just red tape and Eurocrats. Brussels is a city of fine food, café culture, Art Nouveau architecture and the surreal."

This cosmopolitan city spoils its visitors with numerous tourist attractions: parks, museums, cultural events, shops, cafés and restaurants, from the trendy Dansaert area to the chic Zavel and popular Marollen districts. With the presence of various colleges and universities, it will be no surprise to learn that Brussels also has a lively student scene. 9000 students live near the Vlerick campus alone.

Settling In

Most students studying in Belgium rent a private room for the whole academic year. The best time of the year to start looking for housing is July-August. We advise you to come at the latest two weeks prior to the start of classes, as you will need time to adjust and find your way around in Brussels.

The best way to look for a room or apartment is simply by walking around the vicinity of the campus, looking for (orange) signs saying ‘te huur’ (= for rent). The price for a studio/apartment ranges between 300 and 450 euro/month. You can also try the following links to find a place:

ToiLetMeKnow, or how Hackathons can create opportunities
Date: 29 November 2016

The great thing about Vlerick is that it encourages you to participate in business games, case studies, and hackathons. Hacka-what, I hear you saying? A hackathon, in the traditional sense, is a rat-race, sprint-like competition in which software developers along with subject-matter-experts work on a disruptive project during a limited amount of time ranging from […]
