The small European country of Belgium is truly an international country. In addition to being host to the EU’s headquarters, it also hosts the headquarters of many other international organizations. With three official languages, exciting museums, beautiful old architecture, important political institutions, and a diverse culture, taking a Masters degree in Belgium is an excellent choice for those seeking a dynamic location for advancing education. Full of technological advancements, Belgium is a modern European country with a newer history in comparison to its neighbors. For the student interested in studying in a diverse location, Belgium is perfect. 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.

Materials are the building blocks of the modern global economy and are instrumental for the transition to a green, circular economy which emits less CO2. Twenty-seven of these materials have been defined by the EU as critical, meaning that they combine high importance to the EU economy with a high risk associated with their supply. Accessing the known primary raw material sources has become more challenging, while the amounts of industrial waste and end-of-life-products are rapidly increasing. These waste streams contain secondary raw materials, many of which are critical and can be recovered, diversifying supply and contributing to meeting increasing materials demands.
