Our International Relations colleagues are closely involved in diplomacy activities with the Belgian and Flemish governments, foreign embassies located here, Belgian embassies across the world, and, last but not least, our international alumni. Our activities include meetings with foreign embassies in Belgium and their representatives, be it for joint projects, working with their students at our university, or participating in cultural activities organised on campus (e.g. thematic days) or in partnership with VUB.
VUB is among the top 17% of universities worldwide. According to the 2021 QS World University Rankings, VUB scores particularly well in both qualitative teaching and international attractiveness for teaching staff. As a result, the VUB is considered one of Europe's most innovative universities, appearing in 59th position in Reuters' ranking
