    • Dear student

      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!
