Belgium has been attracting Indian students for quite a few years. Belgium’s record in terms of living conditions, peace and cooperation, education infrastructure and training are driving Indian Students to choose the country as an important option for higher education. There are more than 1000 Indian students studying various courses in 18 universities. Most of the students are pursuing Science and Management courses.
Belgium Offers high level of educational opportunities for international students. Its society also has been a safe place. We can find Indian students at Solvay Business School (ULB, located in Brussels), University of Antwerp, the Vlerick Management School (Ghent) and Catholic University of Louvain (Frenchspeaking, UCL, Louvain- la- neuve). But most of them are registered at Catholic University of Leuven (Dutch-speaking, KUL, Leuven) and the University of Ghent.
Because of Belgium’s thrust on growing itself as an alternative to UK, USA and Australia, it is coming into the picture slowly. Ghent University, a highly pluralistic university with more than 30 thousand students is the most reputed institution in Belgium. It is one of the best universities in the world for Biotech, Biochemistry and other science related courses.
You can pursue Ph.D. in Bioengineering at the EnVOC research group (Environmental Organic Chemistry and Technology). You can find highly friendly, research oriented, and motivated environment in the institutes. All the universities are tension free and smoothly organized compared to our universities and colleges. You can also enjoy the facilities and the vibrancy of the locations in Belgium. One good advantage in Belgium is the people are not English prejudiced. This is the appealing aspect for Indian students. There are good number of People of Indian Origin as well.
