Faculty Committees for Internationalisation

Each faculty has a Faculty Committee for Internationalisation (FCI). The FCI chairperson and/or the faculty administrator will be able to help you with most of your questions about academic matter (courses, schedules, exams, transcripts, internschip, placement, professors, faculty regulations, deadlines, etc.).

For study exchange the application deadlines are set to 15 May (1st semester) and 15 November (2nd semester). Other applications (e.g. in the framework of PhD studies and research stays) should be submitted at least two months prior to arrival. For students who need a visa to travel to Belgium it is advised to submit the application at least 3 months in advance.”
