General information: Belgium consists of three regions: the Dutch speaking North (Flanders), the French speaking South (Wallonia) and Brussels, where both Dutch and French are official languages. Brussels is the royal residence and capital of Belgium, located in the center of the country, and therefore offers all the advantages of a modern big city. Brussels is also the center of important political institutions such as the European Union, NATO and EUROCONTROL, and is a very popular University city. The Libre Université de Bruxelles was founded in 1834 as an independent and undenominational University. Today it has about 24.000 students with 30% as international students.
