International Student Platform

VUB is a melting pot of cultures, colours, languages and styles. This diversity characterises the university and provides students and staff with a broader and richer world view. Because of the strong presence of international students, the VUB International Relations Office created the International Student Platform that gives everyone the opportunity to have a voice in VUB policy.

The name speaks for itself: the International Student Platform offers internationals a platform to have a greater say. It is not about legal power, but an advisory role like that of the student council. Its board discusses themes relevant to international students such as housing, healthcare and mobility, but it also organises events such as job fairs for internationals or cross-cultural communication events. The platform also offers moments to get to know each other and make friends. After all, it is important that everyone finds their place at the VUB. The board consists of twelve members, including a president and a vice-president, who are elected annually. They do their utmost to give the student council a more international character and to make VUB an even more inclusive university.

Do you also want to develop your leadership skills and have a say in the policy of your university? Then take a look at the website and apply to become a member. During an interview, you will get the chance to explain why this is something you really like and who knows, maybe you will be on the board of the International Student Platform next year!

*As an Urban Engaged University, we call upon our VUB community to help build a better world through social engagement. On the "The World Needs You" platform, the VUB collects socially meaningful projects on which students, staff, alumni and sympathisers can collaborate. These projects do not represent the university. The initiatives and communication are the responsibility of the project organisers and do not represent the university's position.
