Belgium


Discover the heart of Europe!

Yep, Belgium really is situated right in the heart of Europe! With The Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg on one side, France on the other and the UK just over The English Channel. Belgium’s location, small size and clash of cultures are part of what make it so great!

Belgium has a rich history and culture, where castle-dominated town can be found on winding rivers. Belgium is famous for medieval cities, gothic cathedrals, castles, diamonds, waffles, chocolates, and frites (fries). The northern Flemish speak a variety of Dutch, the southern Walloons speak French and a small pocket of citizens speak German. The capital, Brussels, is officially bi-lingual but mostly French-speaking. Who would have thought that in an area approximately half the size of Tasmania, a nation of over 11 million people speaking three different languages could peacefully co-exist?!

Don’t learn French at school? That’s OK! Belgium doesn’t have a language requirement, making it a fantastic alternative to France. The linguistic diversity of the country ensures that Belgians are used to accommodating first-time French learners. School days are shorter than in France, and public transport is readily available in most towns. So, what are you waiting for? If you’re interested in becoming a WEP exchange student and learning about European culture, why not study in Belgium?
