Discover the World During the VUB Go Abroad Week

Monday, 26 October, 2015 - 15:30 to Friday, 30 October, 2015 - 15:00
Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus
International Relations & Mobility Office

After the popular Go Abroad Fairs of the last years, VUB's International Relations & Mobility Office now, for the first time, organises a whole Go Abroad Week: a whole week of free events  showcasing the various international possibilities for students, PhD students, and VUB Personnel.

VUB wants all students and staff to be world citizens. And what better way to develop world citizenship than living, working, studying, or volunteering abroad? This will not only be a great experience you will remember for the rest of your life, it will also be a big bonus on your CV. 

We kick off the Go Abroad Week with a celebration of our own multicultural city of Brussels. At the Brussels Abroad Festival on Monday the 26th of October you can discover the cultural diversity at your doorstep, with food, music and entertainment from Brussels' own multicultural inhabitants who will share their culture with VUB’s students and staff.

If you want to find out what opportunities there are for VUB students to go abroad, then don’t miss the Go Abroad Fair in Jette on the 27th of October, or in Etterbeek on the 28th of October. You can win an interrail trip across Europe worth 1966 at the Brussels Abroad Festival and the Go Abroad Fairs in Jette and Etterbeek.


If it’s an international internship you’re looking for then come to the Convivium on the 29th. 

Staff and students who want to improve their Intercultural Competences can sign up for the Intercultural Communications Workshop on the 27th. There is also an info session on international mobility opportunities for PhD students and personnel in Jette on the 27th and in Etterbeek on the 30th. 

Also don't mis the Eat Abroad Erasmus exhibit and international meals in the Etterbeek Restaurant throughout the Week.

All activities that take place during the Go Abroad Week are free.
