FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS
Brussels College Night is the only U.S.-focused college fair in Belgium. The event provides high school students from across Belgium with unparalleled access to representatives from over 50 U.S. universities and American-accredited universities in Europe in order to help secondary school students and families learn about higher education opportunities in the United States.
Meet with U.S. representatives
You will have the chance to talk to representatives from more than 50 U.S. universities and American-accredited universities in Europe and ask them any questions you have about the university admissions process.
Who should attend?
The primary targets of college fairs like Brussels College Night are secondary school students, including those in their last year of studies (“seniors”) who are preparing to submit applications to U.S. universities as well as younger students who are beginning to consider their post-secondary school options. We welcome students of all ages as well as their parents, siblings, teachers, and counselors!
Attendance to this fair is free for students and parents and while registration is not required, we think it’s a great idea! You will get a reminder the week before Brussels College Night with helpful hints to help you prepare for the event, as well as any important last-minute reminders.
Registration for Brussels College Night is strongly recommended for students, families, or teachers/counselors attending the fair.
Organized by EducationUSA Belgium, the one and only U.S.-focused college fair in Belgium is a one-stop shop for your recruitment needs. For the past thirty-five years, Brussels College Night has provided university representatives with unparalleled access to high school students from across Belgium. The fair is also supported by a number of international schools in the region of Brussels, whose students come from around the world and reflect the multicultural and multilingual character of Europe’s capital city.
Belgium is a country with three national languages (French, Dutch, and German) but English remains a highly popular common language. Students interested in pursuing undergraduate studies in an English-speaking country are familiar with the United States and the high quality education available at American colleges and universities.
Belgium is an increasingly diverse country, and with institutions like the EU and NATO in close proximity, Brussels is a uniquely international and multicultural hub. In 2019, a quarter of attendees at Brussels College Night were from another EU Member State and another 35% were from outside of the European Union. Recruiting in Belgium allows you to reach students from all over Europe and the world!
Multiple delicious exports
Waffles! Chocolate! Beer! Who wouldn’t want more international students from Belgium on their campus? (We’re only joking! But while national exports might not be a factor in admissions, the opportunity to visit a small country with such tasty treats might factor into your recruitment schedule.)
