If you can travel to Brussels, our team are happy to meet you, show you around the facilities and answer your queries. When possible, we can also arrange a meeting with a member of academic staff.
We host regular open events for prospective students, giving you the chance to meet with admissions staff, the faculty and current students in a relaxed and informal environment. Find out about our programmes, job and internship opportunities, Brussels life and our entry requirements/admissions procedures.
Upcoming Open Evenings
- Tuesday 6 November 2018
- Tuesday 19 February 2019
Booking usually opens four weeks before each event.
If you can't attend the open evenings on these dates, don't worry as we are happy to meet prospective students during office hours (Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm).
If you are based in the UK, we also attend open events at the Canterbury campus so you can find us there. We recommend emailing the Admissions Officer to arrange an appointment. During term time it may also be possible to sit in on a lecture to give you a taste of studying here.
