Popular prestigious schools for foreign students in Brussels

Education in Belgium is compulsory from the age of 6 - this requirement is regulated by law, and without obligation to search for a school by geographical location (registration). Parents have the right to choose any, based on personal preferences or ratings of the most prestigious educational institutions. It is possible to choose a school by language: in such a school, it is easier for a foreign child to achieve high marks, to easily move to the next educational step. Classification of schools by language of instruction:

  • French speaking
  • Femish
  • German (often simultaneously with English).

In the first year of study in Brussels, students learn one language, from the second - studying additional ones is mandatory (1-2).

Another feature of Belgium's school education, it is the obligatory, in accordance with the Constitution of the country, study of one of two courses (2-3 hours a week) - secular ethics or the foundations of one of the religions.

Equal conditions for learning have been created for children with disabilities: in accordance with the law, they attend a comprehensive school, receiving full primary and secondary education.

For the first 4 years, schoolchildren study compulsory subjects, and at the last stage, at 15-16 years old, it is necessary to choose the type of school focused on the future profession. In Belgium there are 4 levels of academic school education:

  • General. Without a professional bias. Students study the humanities and natural sciences, foreign languages, and the fundamentals of economics. It is assumed that after her graduation, the student will go to universities in Belgium, Europe and the world
  • Technical Less prestigious and very narrowly focused. Suitable for applicants who have already chosen a specialty. Rducational scheme: in the first year - theory, then - mostly practical exercises. With a diploma of a technical school, a student can enter a university for specific technical specialties or start working
  • Vocational and technical. The principles of studying are similar to the technical level, but after passing it, students usually do not continue their studies at a university or college, but immediately go to work
  • Creative (art courses). In addition to general subjects, the main bias goes to professions related to theater, dance, and visual arts. In the learning process, the student chooses a specialty, receives a diploma and, if desired, enters a university.

The best universities and colleges for students in Brussels

Higher education in Brussels, as well as throughout the country, is provided by two language communities: French and Flemish. But in most universities, studying is also conducted in English, for example, on the basis of branches of international universities. It is characteristic that many universities accept applicants without passing entrance exams. Exceptions are specialties in:

  • engineering
  • medicine
  • economic specialties, etc.

Higher education in Brussels is available in:

1. Universities

2. Colleges

3. Higher schools equated to a university (for example, military ones).

Duration of studies at universities is from 3 to 12 years. After the first three years of study, the student receives a Bachelor's degree - he can go to work or study further. The next two courses a student "grows" to a Master's degree; if a student is interested in obtaining a Doctoral degree, he studies further, doing research activities.

Universities in Brussels are divided into:

  • state
  • private.

State, as a rule, offer traditional academic programs, private - a narrower specialization, the ability to take courses in additional subjects. The most prestigious higher educational institutions in the country are concentrated in Brussels, including the oldest in Europe.

Higher education in Brussels colleges is obtained in a shorter period, but the amount of knowledge and level of a student as a future specialist is somewhat lower than university ones. Upon graduation, the college issues a diploma with a professional Bachelor's degree (at the university it is an academic bachelor). A college diploma entitles you to a university education or work in a specialty.
