Katholieke Universiteit Leuven Belgium

Hello. Are you going to Belgium on Erasmus? Good choice :) I went there last year. The university Katholieke Universiteit is located in Leuven: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leuven which is a smaller city. It has approx. 100.000 population. I studied on Faculty of Law. If you are wondering if lessons are in english language than you are right :) I was relieved when I found out about the language. It just makes you life easier to listen to english lessons than lessons in french, dutch or german :) We did however had a free lessons for dutch. Other languages were also taught by EILC (150€ per course - french etc.). Overall knowledge of english in Belgium is really high.
I staayed in Belgium for 2 semesters. There were 15 courses to pick from every semester. Every passed exam was worth from 4-6 ETCS points. What I really like on faculty was the fact that professors were actually people with experience (judges, lawyers...) so the lessons were really interesting. Lessons were mostly in the afternoon.
Accommodation: I wasn't able to arrange any accommodation before I came to Belgium so I had to stay in hostels for few days while I was looking for accommodation. There were no student dormitories available. Accommodation was about 250-300€ (with all expenses).
Trips: I went to visit Brussels, Antwerpen, Gent, Brugge, Oostende and Waterloo (by train). Also Belgium is a really nice point to go visit Amsterdam, Paris, London.
Erasmus overall? 10/10. :)

My elder brother was the student of this university. He said the campus area is very nice. The teachers and other fellow students are very helpful.
