Student Reviews

Latest positive review:

The atmosphere in Leuven was perfect for a beginning student, the classes and lab sessions were of high level and the guidance was very informative. There are also many student activities that are helping you integrate in the student life. Living costs were rather cheap.

Latest critical review:

I was very disappointed with KU Leuven. I was enrolled for the master program energy for smart cities. Not only the facility has never been upgraded for a long time (So, be sure to freeze during winter, eventhough it is not as cold as Nordic country) There is nothing smart about smart city program in KU Leuven. We are thought to listen a bird eye view of all energy...
