The world needs you

VUB? Now there’s a place to study. And to explore. But there’s more. It’s also a place where the world taps you on the shoulder and asks something of you. Whether you're a student, researcher or professor, you can change things here and now. Things that are wrong with the world. Injustice. Climate change. Gender discrimination. Poverty and inequality. Yes, the world needs you. Needs you badly. And yes, VUB is the ideal base for you to get started.
