Full of technological advancements, Belgium is a modern European country with a newer history in comparison to its neighbors.

Dutch, French and German are all the official languages of the Kingdom of Belgium, and students will have the opportunity to live and work amongst people from all parts of the world when they pursue graduate training in this country. 

The multilingual, highly-educated, international environment in Belgium is a great place to take your Masters degree. Belgium has several excellent universities for foreign students to consider. The country highly values education, with a high adult literacy rate and a 19th ranking in education from the Program for International Student Assessment. The emphasis on education easily translates into the secondary education level, and students benefit from some of the top professors in Europe while studying in Belgium. 

In Belgium, the academic year begins on the first of October and runs through the 30th of September. Most universities divide this year into two semesters, which are broken into 13 weeks of study, two weeks of vacation, one week of individual study and three weeks of examination.

Belgium divides its degrees into three cycles. A Masters degree is considered a second cycle degree. It is available to students who already have a Bachelors degree. Those with extensive professional experience may apply to the Admissions Panel to have that experience validated to serve as the degree. They also must file a request with the school with which they wish to study. Most Masters programs take two years of study, or four semesters, to complete. 

In addition to the standard Masters degree, Belgium universities offer a Complementary Masters degree. This is offered to those who already have a graduate degree or who have 300 credits. This is different than the third cycle, and is more in line with a second Masters degree than a Doctoral degree. 

In Belgium, students have the opportunity to study in a multilingual environment. Masters classes are commonly taught in French, Dutch and German. Students will be able to choose from most majors as they pursue a Master in Belgium. In addition, they will benefit from living near the headquarters of the EU and several other international organizations. This means that students will constantly be in contact with people from around the globe. 

Upon graduation with a Masters in Belgium, students can either opt to pursue a third cycle degree, which is equivalent to a Doctoral degree, or they can start looking for a professional position in their field. Having a Masters will make them better qualified for job opportunities throughout the country as well. Major employers in Belgium include SAS, Torfs and AE. Technology, business and financials are all important industries in Belgium.

If you are considering pursuing a Masters degree program in Belgium, you will need to learn about the visa requirements. Students will also need to find a place to stay before traveling to the country, and then make plans for that travel. Yet the first step in the process is finding a school with the right degree program, and our online search tools can help.

Master of Space Studies (Leuven et al)

KU Leuven - University of Leuven
Campus Full time Part time September 2017 Belgium Brussels

The Master of Space Studies programme is designed to prepare scientists to respond to a myriad of challenges and opportunities. In addition to coursework in space sciences, the curriculum is enriched by a Master's thesis and a series of guest lecturers from international, national and regional institutions. [+]

The space sector plays an important role in economic, social, technological and scientific developments. The future of the sector and its manifold applications require highly skilled experts with a broad interdisciplinary perspective. The development of innovative space technologies is fostered by an intense symbiosis between technological sectors and the challenges set by fundamental research in exact and biomedical sciences. Additionally, the economic and social valorisation of space technologies requires an efficient relationship between project developers and the economic sector. The large scale of space projects imposes important constraints on management. The international character of the space sector and of its broad applications, including the relevance of space for security and defence, implies a need for European and international legal and political measures. What is the Master of Space Studies all about? The Master of Space Studies programme is designed to prepare scientists to respond to a myriad of challenges and opportunities. In addition to coursework in space sciences, the curriculum is enriched by a Master's thesis and a series of guest lecturers from international, national and regional institutions. This is an advanced Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis. Structure The programme is conceived as an advanced master’s programme and as such it requires applicants to have successfully completed an initial master’s programme in either the humanities and social sciences, exact sciences and technology or biomedical sciences. The interdisciplinary nature of the programme is expressed by the common core of 25 ECTS in introductory coursework. These courses are mandatory for every student. They acquaint the student with the different aspects that together form the foundation of space-related activities. The backgrounds of the students in programme are diverse, but all students have the ability to transfer knowledge across disciplines. Depending on their background and interests, students have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge through more domain-specific optional courses, for a total of 20 ECTS, covering the domains of (A) Space Law, Policy, Business and Management, (B) Space Sciences and (C) Space Technology and Applications, with the possibility to combine the latter two. For the master’s thesis (15 ECTS), students are embedded in a research team of one of the organising universities, or in an external institute, organisation or industrial company, in which case an academic supervisor is assigned as the coordinator of the project. The master’s thesis is the final section of the interdisciplinary programme, in which the acquired knowledge and abilities are applied to a complex and concrete project. Department The mission of the Department of Physics and Astronomy is exploring, understanding and modelling physical realities using mathematical, computational, experimental and observational techniques. Fifteen teams perform research at an international level. Publication of research results in leading journals and attracting top-level scientists are priorities for the department. New physics and innovation in the development of new techniques are important aspects of our mission. The interaction with industry (consulting, patents...) and society (science popularisation) are additional points of interest. Furthermore, the department is responsible for teaching basic physics courses in several study programmes. Is this the right programme for me? The interdisciplinary Master of Space Studies programme is open to students who have already obtained a master’s degree. The criteria for admission to the programme include the following: the candidate has obtained an initial master’s degree for which he/she can motivate the relevance for space studies. the candidate presents a 2-page essay with a consistent view of the importance of the programme for his/her professional expectations, in view of the candidate’s previous education. The candidate may be invited to an intake interview. The objective of the selection procedure with respect to the initial master’s degree is to verify the student’s chances of success. However, students with an initial master’s degree that does not have a direct apparent connection with space studies can still apply, and may be accepted depending on the power of conviction of their background and argumentation. Non-native English speaking students are required to submit a TOEFL or IELTS certificate. Objectives The objectives of the programme are to develop students' knowledge of all aspects of space studies generally and, specifically, to impart: the ability to situate the relevance of students' own curriculum in the broad field of space studies; specialised knowledge and attitudes in specific fields relevant to space studies; insight in the development and realisation of large international projects; abilities necessary for the guiding of complex projects. After the completion of the programme, students will have attained the following learning outcomes: Knowledge and understanding LO1: Are capable of analysing and understanding the main scientific, technological, political, legal and economical aspects of space activities. LO2: Demonstrate an advanced knowledge in one of the following fields: A. Space Law, Policy, Business and Management; B. Space Sciences; C. Space Technology. Skills LO3: Are capable of discussing and reporting on the main scientific, technological, political, legal and economical aspects of space activities. LO4: Can apply, in the field of space studies, the knowledge, skills and approaches they obtained during their previous academic master. LO5: Are able to integrate their own disciplinary expertise applied to space related activities within their broad and complex multi-disciplinary environment, taking into account their societal, technological and scientific context. LO6: Can communicate clearly and unambiguously to specialist and non-specialist audiences about space projects in general and their specific area of expertise. LO7: Have the skills to commence participation in complex space projects in multi-disciplinary and/or multinational settings in the framework of institutions, agencies or industry. This includes information collection, analysis and drawing conclusions, individually and/or as part of a team. LO8: Can undertake research in the space field individually, translate the findings in a structured fashion, and communicate and discuss the results in a clear manner (oral and written). Approaches LO9: Have a multi-disciplinary approach to complex projects, with special attention to the integration of the different and complementary aspects of such projects. LO10: Understand and are able to contribute to exploiting the benefits of space for humanity and its environment and are familiarised with the broad spectrum of aspects of peaceful space activities, including the societal ones. LO11: Have a critical approach towards the place of space activities in their societal framework, including ethical questions arising from space activities. Career perspectives Graduates will be in a position to develop a career in the space sector or in space research. Depending on his/her previous degree, the student will find opportunities in the space industry (engineers, product developers and technical-commercial functions with a high degree of technical and financial responsibilities), research institutions with activities in space (researchers and project developers), (inter)governmental bodies with responsibilities in research and development programmes related to space (project managers and directors, policy makers on national, European and international levels). The spectrum of employment possibilities encompasses not only the space sector as such, but also the broader context of companies and organisations which use or are facilitated by space missions.

European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE)

University of Hamburg, Institute of Law & Economics
Campus Full time 1 year October 2017 Belgium Ghent

This European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) programme offers the unique opportunity for interdisciplinary studies of law and economics at two or even three European and Non-European universities. Each partner university awards a Master degree (LL.M. / M.A. / M.Sc.). [+]

Masters in Belgium 2017. European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) This European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) programme offers the unique opportunity for interdisciplinary studies of law and economics at two or even three European and Non-European universities. Each partner university awards a Master degree (LL.M. / M.A. / M.Sc.). The programme provides students with an advanced understanding of the economic effects of divergent laws and prepares students for a professional career, for example, in public organisations, in multinational law firms or consultancy firms. Graduates are also well prepared for doctorate research in a PhD programme such as the European Doctorate in Law and Economics (EDLE). The EMLE has been recognized by the European Commission as an Erasmus + Programme of "outstanding academic quality". The Erasmus + label allows the EMLE programme to annually grant a substantial number of scholarships (including several full scholarships to students from “Partner Countries”). For law students, the knowledge of the specific regulations of their home country is too narrow a base for counseling firms that are active in international trade. Additionally, a familiarity with the economic effects of legal rules has become indispensable for understanding their clients' commercial needs. Similarly, economics students will profit from an accurate understanding of the institutional legal framework of market economies. For both lawyers and economists, knowledge of the other discipline and international contacts are crucial for a successful future career. The EMLE programme is the institutional response to these challenges. EMLE Programme Features The EMLE programme offers the following unique combination of features: A truly interdisciplinary approach: - Lectures in both law and economics - A programme that is open to graduates of law or economic faculties - A large faculty consisting of leading academics and practitioners in the field of law and economics An international curriculum, faculty, and student body - The possibility to study at three different universities out of seven European partners and several non-European partner universities - A network of highly qualified students from over 30 nations A small student body at each partner university to ensure an intensive learning experience Programme Structure The programme covers one academic year, for which successful students will receive 60 ECTS points. The courses start at the beginning of October and end in June. The academic year is divided into three terms. The unique international and interdisciplinary character of the EMLE Programme is secured through an intensive co-operation between lawyers and economists at no less than seven European Universities and two non-European partners. Students may study at up to three different universities but cannot spend all terms in the same location. In the first two terms students can choose among three teaching centres. This leads to an average class size of up to 35 students, given a maximum of 105 admitted students in the entire program. - In the first term, courses will be offered at the Universities of Rotterdam, Hamburg and Bologna. Classes generally start in the first week of October; exams finish in late December. - In the second term students will study at the Universities of Ghent, Hamburg or Rotterdam. Classes generally start in the first week of January; exams finish in late March. - In the third term there are more teaching centres and a lower average class size. Courses are offered in Aix-en-Provence, Haifa, Hamburg, Mumbai, Warsaw, and Vienna. Classes generally start in the first week of April; exams finish in late June. Admission Requirements The EMLE is a postgraduate course. Preference will be given to applicants who already have a first master degree. The minimum requirement for admission is a bachelor degree, provided that this degree leads up to employability in the relevant labour market. Applicants with a bachelor degree only need to provide proof that this degree is an appropriate level of qualification in the labour market in their home country. Besides graduates in Law or Economics, students with a first degree in Business Administration or in other social sciences may also apply if the curriculum includes a substantial number of courses in law and/or economics. The above requirement with respect to employability in the labour market equally applies. Application Procedure The application procedure differs depending on whether an applicant is considered a ‘Programme-Country- student’ or ‘Partner-Country-student’ in accordance with the criteria of the European Union. ‘Programme-Country- students’ are those who either, - have a passport of an EU Member State or Former Yugoslavia, Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland,Turkey or - have carried out their main activities (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in any of the above countries. All applicants who are characterized by neither of the above conditions are considered as ‘Partner-Country-students’. Note that students with multiple nationalities who are citizens of one of the countries listed in the definition, as well as of a ‘Partner-Country‘, and who have not spent 12 months in Europe may choose whether they want to apply as ‘Programme-Country- students’ or ‘Partner-Country-students’. Duration & Price Price € 5,500.- for ‘Programme-Country- students’; € 9,500.- for ‘Partner-Country-students’. [-]
