Three types of mobility programmes are offered by the Brussels School of Engineering:

  • Exchange programmes (Erasmus+ and bilateral agreements): you stay one or two quadrimesters at ULB, the scores obtained at ULB are transferred to your home institution (non-graduating program).
  • Double degree programmes with selected partner institutions: you get a degree from your home institution in addition to the degree from ULB (graduating program)
  • Internships: you spend a period in a research laboratory of the School, your home institution recognizes this stay as part of your program (non-graduating program)

ERASMUS / Exchange Programmes

Scores obtained at ULB are taken into account only for the degree at the home institution (non graduating programs)

Applying

The web site of the "Service de Mobilité Etudiante"  provides the relevant administrative information about the procedure and deadlines.

The mobility guide contains useful information about ULB, practical aspects of your stay, general academic information, …

Don’t forget you must be announced officially by your home institution.

Double degree

The Brussels School of Engineering signed agreements with selected partner institutions giving the opportunity to students from these institutions to obtain a second degree in engineering thanks to a stay at ULB and a small extension of the studies.
 

Applying
All students applying for a double degree program must be selected and nominated by their home institution. The application form and the student's file must be sent by the student’s home institution to the secretariat  of the Ecole polytechnique de Bruxelles.
We do not consider applications sent directly by students.
Students will be personally contacted afterwards and informed on how to proceed with their application.
