The Francophone universities of Belgium are spread throughout the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
They offer high-quality training in the three major areas of knowledge: science and technology, the humanities and health sciences.
Beyond in-depth knowledge of the subject chosen, university study equips students with a solid general education and encourages a scientific approach, placing emphasis on the development of both basic and applied research. The universities of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, Belgium's French-speaking regions, are renowned for the high quality of their research programmes. All of them enjoy an excellent reputation within our country and beyond our borders.
