General information

Which are the teaching methods?

Teaching at ULB is based on a credit system, called ECTS (European Credits Transfer System). To know how many credits you will get for a course, check the course catalogue.

Courses are categorized into teaching hours (labeled in the programme as Th. for “théorie”), seminars (Sém.), exercises (Ex.) and practicals (T.P. for “travaux pratiques”).

Which are the courses choice's rules?

As exchange student, you are requested to register to minimum one course and maximum 30 ECTS credits. The exact number of courses or ECTS credits you will have to totalize during your exchange period has to be determined by your home institution.

Each exchange takes place in the scope of an agreement between the home institution and the SBS-EM. If you are authorized to select courses from the other departments, you nevertheless have to choose at least 60% of your courses in the SBS-EM programme.

You are requested to take all the exams you have registered to.

  • Check the programmes which are open to you;

  • Check the courses catalogue (courses list provided here below);

  • Get your courses choice approved by your home coordinator. If necessary provide the courses descriptions or the table of content and the number of ECTS credits);
