It offers a comprehensive catalogue of 235 academic degree programs at campuses in 11 cities. With more than 7,400 international students from 140 countries—more than 15 % of its total student population—KU Leuven fosters a vibrant international university community.
Top-level research is conducted and judged according to the highest international standards and implies interaction, cooperation and exchange, of both researchers and results. As such, KU Leuven is a charter member of the League of European Research-intensive Universities (the LERU network) along with the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Leiden, Edinburgh, Geneva, Heidelberg, Strasbourg etc.
Likewise, with respect to teaching, several highly regarded surveys show that the numerous contributions by KU Leuven researchers to renowned journals and the university’s top-ten ranking among other European scientific institutions, place KU Leuven projects on a par with national and international ones.
