The brand new Hogeschool-Universiteit Brussel (HUBrussel) is the first institute of higher education that houses both a college (professional higher education) and a university (academic education).
It offers the best of both, e.g. excellent student counselling, a well-developed research culture, the analytical approach to a literature study, or the business-oriented ways of a school of economics. Student life is that of a college and a university combined and takes place in the largest city of Belgium, which is also the hub of the European Union.
The HUBrussel is the result of the merger between Brussels-based colleges EHSAL, VLEKHO, HONIM and a university; the Katholieke Universiteit Brussel. The economics and language programmes common to all partners are from now on offered jointly or integrated into a new course.
Within HUBrussel all degree programmes are organised by one of the two educational divisions.
The Academic Education division is based around three faculties:
- Faculty of Economics and Management
- Faculty of Law
- Faculty of Linguistics and Literature
Those three faculties closely cooperate with the integrated faculties of the K.U.Leuven Association.
The Professional Education division is based around four schools:
- School of Commercial Sciences and Management
- School of Education
- School of Health Care
- School of Social & Community Work
Choosing HUBrussel is choosing a combination of solid scientific foundations and practice/business-oriented education. It is choosing for Flemish culture topped with a European sauce; maximising your chances to shape your own future; studying in a stimulating environment that is geared to your specific needs.
