    Grants can be awarded by the French Community of Belgium and by the universities of Brussels and Wallonia.

    • The European Union grants

    Grants are also awarded within the framework of European programmes :

    The SOCRATES/ ERASMUS and LEONARDO programmes award financial support, as part of projects presented by the establishments, to encourage the mobility of students spending a study period or a traineeship in another country of the European Union.

    These are integrated Masters courses of a very high level, proposed by at least three higher education establishments in three different European countries to students from third countries (countries outside the EU). The courses provide for a period of study in at least two of the three universities and lead to the awarding of a double, multiple or joint diploma.
    Students from third countries who have obtained a first diploma delivered by a higher education establishment can benefit from a grant system.

    Student life
     
    Student living costs are dependent on a number of factors linked to the type of programme followed by students, type of accommodation chosen, way of life, etc. It may be considered that students will need a minimum of 800 euro per month, without however taking into account the various registration fees. Information may be obtained from the welfare services of the establishments or from establishment websites.

    The majority of higher education establishments are located in urban centres that are easily accessible by public transport (train, tram, bus, underground). Students benefit from a whole range of infrastructures (shops, swimming pools, sports centres, cinemas, theatres) and from a variety of catering options. Students are able to participate in numerous extra-curricular activities (cultural and sporting activities, student parties, conferences, etc.) organised by the establishments or by student associations.

    With respect to accommodation, some establishments offer students rooms at very reasonable prices. Students can also search for accommodation via estate agents or individuals. The minimum price for accommodation may be estimated at between 250 and 350 euros per month.
