Welcome @ VUB, Faculty of Physical Education and Physiotherapy
We are happy to help you with information on our courses and possibilities for exchange students.
Internationalisation coordinator: Katrijn D'Herdt
For general questions about your application and offered courses, you can contact the Student Administration Center.
For specific questions about the scholarship programme or about living and studying in Brussels, you can contact the International Relations and Mobility Office.
2. Partner Institutions
Please check if your home institution has cooperation or exchange agreements with VUB. When there is no exchange agreement with your home university or specific cooperation agreement with your government and the VUB you cannot apply for an exchange.
3. Application and deadlines
Your application is managed by your home institution. Please check with your home university for the necessary documents and deadlines. Make sure your learning agreement is approved by both institutions!
4. Courses in English and language requirements
The faculty offers a rather small selection of courses in English. You can find the overview here. All incoming exchange students have to provide a proof of English language knowledge in their online application. This can be an official English test, a proof of English-taught courses taken at the home university, or a statement from the home university confirming that you have sufficient knowledge of English to take English-taught courses at the VUB.

5. Courses in Dutch / Internships and language requirements
Most of the courses on the faculty are offered in Dutch. Incoming exchange students can select courses from our Dutch-taught programmes, on the condition that you provide us with a proof of Dutch language knowledge in your online application. For more information: click here
For most internships it is important to have sufficient French language knowledge.
