Everything as you would expect from a first world university, there could be a bit more availability of resources dedicated to internationals.

Communication at KdG is atrocious to be honest. They are super late with telling us anything. Teachers don’t know anything and it is just a little all over the place. Especially with the change in the name IBS to BBM. They act like its nothing but all of a sudden it is like we are studying something completely different than what we signed up for.

What KdG University of Applied Sciences says

  • Profile of Vince Cornwell

    Vince Cornwell says:

    Situated in the heart of Europe, Belgium is the place to explore the rest of Europe easily and quickly using excellent public transportation.

    KdG University focuses on getting you ready for the job market, by offering hands-on challenges, working in smaller groups so coaching is more personal. We are a super diverse university based in a pocket-sized, student-friendly metropole, which boasts many start-ups, Europe's second-largest harbor, and tons of hip and trendy places-to-be. Our way of working is to merge this place of opportunity with the teaching and learning experience at KdG.

    We are truly super diverse, with people from all over the world in every group. We focus on cross-cultural Communication, in order to effectively do business globally, and all our business programs concentrate on sustainability.

    We are lucky to be able to keep our class groups small (around 50 students per group), so as to offer personal coaching and a safe and pleasant learning environment.

    Student services are there for you. We help you find housing, offer study support, psychological support, you name it. We link you up to a buddy, every group has a class coach, there's the international students' group (The Explorers' Club) that organizes tons of fun and social activities, there are sports clubs, and many more. We are very approachable and strongly believe we should be there for students, always and anytime. Depending on your field of study, obviously, you will end up in different sectors, but of all our alumni (undergraduate degrees) who went into the job market, all of them have found jobs within three months after graduating. It is also possible to pursue a master's degree at a partnering university after your studies at KdG.
