If you’re searching for a vibrant mix of European culture, look no further than Belgium. As the headquarters of the European Union and NATO, it’s a hub of international activity. Join students from around the world to explore a country with three official languages and historic ties to French, Dutch, and German cultures. By living with a host family in the southern half of the country and attending a local high school, you can get an inside look at the customs, the language, and the people of Belgium. This is your chance to redefine the meaning of international education and spend a year or semester immersed in the Belgian way of life.

Things to know

According to international polls, Belgium is one of the most satisfied countries in the world. This satisfaction is perhaps due to the fact that Belgians tend to be very involved in their communities and government. Even so, they can be reserved around new people, and you may have to take the first step in getting to know someone. But once you do, plan to find yourself surrounded by a warm and friendly community.

School Yearlong Program offers you a great opportunity to live and study in another country for a period of up to 11 months.  This program will suit you if you really want to live with a host family, learn a new language and feel a part of a local community.
