Study in the U.S.A.

Group of students

“Every year, thousands of American and Belgian students traverse the Atlantic to broaden their horizons in diverse fields of study ranging from engineering to fine arts. With more than 4,000 colleges and universities, the United States offers international students an unmatched choice of academic programs and world-class institutions to pursue higher education.  It is among the top five study abroad destinations for Belgian students. In the past five years, there have been increases in the number of Belgian students in the U.S. at all levels of study (undergrad: +26%, graduate: +9%, non-degree: +37%, and OPT: +51%) according to the Institute of International Education’s annual Open Doors report.

In Belgium, the Fulbright Commission helps Belgian students with no-cost educational advising services (please visit, grants for graduate study (Master’s or Ph.D.), pre-doctoral and post-doctoral research or university lecturing in the United States, as well as with special programs for language teaching assistants in Dutch, French, and German and secondary school teachers of English. If you are considering studying in the United States, please visit the Commission’s website and mark your calendar to attend the annual Brussels College Night, Belgium’s largest U.S.-based college fair organized.

Belgian universities also have excellent exchange programs with U.S. universities in all regions of the country.
