Saint-Louis University - Bruxelles

2020 - 2021 Programme


Proficiency in foreign languages has been a key issue for over 20 years for the Faculty of Economics, Social and Political Sciences and Communication, aware of the importance of learning a language other than French in our increasingly international economic world.

Therefore the faculty offers bilingual or trilingual programmes in French, English or Dutch, spread out over the three years of study. This option is unique in the academic landscape of French-speaking Belgium. The common principle to these formulas is to replace some of the courses in French by their equivalent in Dutch and/or English.

  • French-English bilingual Major: three courses per academic year are taught in English, except exceptional cases.
  • Trilingual French-Dutch-English Major: for each academic year, two courses are taught in English and two courses are taught in Dutch, except exceptional cases.

(For details, refer to the presentation of the programmes on the “Multilingual degrees” page).

Students who wish to remain in the unilingual course of study also receive quality language lessons because language courses and courses taught in foreign languages are an integral part of their programme. In their first and second years for example they must follow an English and Dutch language course, while in the third year for example they are required to follow a course in English (Corporate finance). In addition, whichever main programme students choose, they may add one or more of the courses offered by Saint Louis’ partner institution, KULeuven - Campus Brussels, to their annual programme block.
