      You may have read the statement on VUBToday concerning the health of Caroline Pauwels, our rector. If you feel the need to talk to someone about this, you can reach out to a student psychologist of Study Guidance:

    • Are you still heartbroken for the end of your Erasmus?
      Are you still dreaming of the moment you will go to study in a new country?
      Are you simply looking forward to meet new people from all over the world?

      ► What does it mean to be a buddy?
      It means being the local friend (i.e. someone that knows Brussels and VUB) you wish you have (or would have) when you arrived in a new confusing city and didn't know anyone.

      ►Will it take a lot of my time?
      No more than it takes for any other of your friends!

    • The exams are getting nearer and we hope it works out well for every student. To start on the right foot, it’s important to know your rights and obligations. You can find them extensively in the Teaching and Examination Regulations, but we list some of them up for your convenience. Make sure you also check out the useful overview on the exam regulations page.

    • In the Belgian legislation, the extension procedure for students who have their residency based on studies, has been changed substantially compared to previous years.

      As of now you are obliged to initiate the extension procedure of your Belgian ID card at the latest 15 days before the expiration date. This is the most significant change!
