Situated in Brussels and home to a thriving international community, Vesalius College offers students a truly unique educational experience. As Europe’s capital, Brussels has an important international vocation: the city is home to European institutions, NATO, and numerous international organisations and multinational companies. Our students can benefit from this international setting in many ways, and our academic programmes draws on this setting to deliver a strong European focus.
Vesalius College has been bringing Brussels further into the classroom by holding a range of guest lectures and workshops with prominent Brussels-based experts. These lectures and workshops are held by Vesalius College’s International Affairs, Communications and Business departments, as well as the European Peace and Security Studies (EPSS) programme.
The workshops and lectures allow students to benefit from direct contact with experts, such as policymakers, international scholars, business leaders, think tank researchers and journalists. This way, students benefit not only from our guest lecturers’ expertise, but are also able to interact with them and build up their own personal and professional networks.
Recent guest lectures and workshops have included:
Vesalius College offers bachelor’s degrees in Business, Communications and International Affairs, and an MSc in European Union Policy. The College’s teaching methods are characterised by small, interactive classes, flexibility in course selection and continuous assessment. As a small college with a student body of approximately 300 and a low student-to-professor ratio, the faculty is accessible and able to take a personal interest in the success of students to help them achieve their potential. Close working relationships between the faculty and students are the cornerstone of the Vesalius education philosophy.
Liberal Arts – Global Minds
The Vesalius curriculum places strong emphasis on providing students with a broad education, reaching beyond artificial boundaries between disciplines. Students are encouraged to complement their major studies with elective courses in philosophy, music, script writing, natural sciences and other fields. In addition, to prepare our students for an ever-more globalised world, language training (including French, Dutch and Mandarin Chinese) is part of the curriculum. At Vesalius, we pride ourselves in offering a liberal and global education that enables our students to think critically, creatively and broadly about core processes and major issues in an ever-changing global environment.
