About

History

The University of Liège doesn't have a "long" history: many universities in Europe date back to the middle ages. Nevertheless, ULiège also has ties to that period. And for two centuries, its rich and abundant history is also that of the Europe after the Treaty of Vienna, then with the history of Belgium and its scientific, social and cultural, economic, and industrial destiny.

Through its teaching, ULiège makes every effort to help everyone build their futures, now and throughout their lives. At the University of Liège, we offer 38 Bachelor degrees in various subject areas and after each of them there are more than 10 Masters to choose from.

ULiège combines basic research with applied research to facilitate interdisciplinarity and contacts between scientists.

In research, the University of Liège offers numerous possibilities for:

  • companies or organisations, both from the public and private sectors, that wish to develop collaborations or subcontract certain research tasks;

Services

Student services

The International Relations Office implements the media needed for the internationalisation of the institution:

  • Mobility of individuals: PhD students, professors, administrative staff in mobility programmes, notably the European Erasmus programme
  • The management of partnerships and agreements that regulate these mobilities or the design of a general framework for collaborations with higher education institutions
  • The project structuring intended for mobility or the development of joint training programmes

Housing services

ULiège is based mainly in Liège, downtown and on the Sart Tilman university sector, located 10 km to the South. Finding housing there is very easy. A multitude of possibilities, at very affordable prices, make of it the least expensive University City of Belgium. Indeed, in addition to university residences, roughly 7,000 student apartments are available in all districts of the city and around the Sart Tilman campus (rooms, studios, apartments, houses).

Library services

The Libraries of the University of Liège are meant to be made available to members of the university community and to the public the information and documentation that they need in their roles as learners, teachers, and researchers. The Network is also the guarantor of an exceptional heritage that it is tasked with preserving and promoting.

ICT services

The General IT Department (SEGI) was created in 1981 by the Board of Directors of the University and reports directly to it. The SEGI is proficient in logistics in all areas of automatic information processing.

Student Life

Campus life

The University of Liège’s campuses offer a fulfilling environment, a framework conducive to studies in cosmopolitan and friendly student cities.

The only complete public university in francophone Belgium, the University of Liège is historically rooted in the heart of the "Ardent City" since 200 years. It is currently deployed in 3 Walloon provinces, within 4 campuses bringing together 10 Faculties and 1 School of Management.

Sports facilities

Physical activity is essential for health. It plays an undeniable role in the prevention of conditions such as cardiovascular diseases. It also allows one to feel good about one's body and to reduce stress. Convinced of these benefits, the University of Liège integrates sports into the health policy that it wishes to develop for the staff, the students and even for those outside the institution.

The RCAE, the ULiège Sport Department, offers nearly 70 physical and sports activities at "student" prices for members of the ULiège community. The RCAE also has agreements with the Rugby FC Liégeois.

Student clubs

Because student life at ULiège goes well beyond the hours spent in the amphitheatres, several associations are active on the campuses with the mission to bring together a community of strong students via the organisation of various actions and events, but also by representing them and supporting them in their projects.

In addition to the Fédé, a multitude of student associations are from different faculties that are circles of students composed of student volunteers who organise different activities within the Faculty/section. There are also the Interfaculty circles that bring together students of all faculties.

Accreditation

ULiège benefits from the three labels of the European Commission: ECTS, Diploma Supplement, and HR Strategy for Researchers. 

Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

At liege university, I took courses in communication, human sciences and anthropology. I have an interest in human resources and public relations. For this reason, I think that the internship program can continue successfully in these areas. In addition, my degree in scientific project competitions will help me with my internship.
