KU Leuven - the oldest university in Europe – was founded in 1425 by Pope Martin V. In the sixteenth century the humanist Desiderius Erasmus lectured here. He founded the Collegium Trilingue in 1517 for the study of Hebrew, Latin, and Greek - the first of its kind. The University is located in Flanders, a northern part of Belgium where the Dutch language is dominant. At present more than 31 thousand students are learning, among them 12 % are foreign students. There are 14 faculties and 50 departments. The university is among the top ten European Universities.
Leuven is a university town with a unique atmosphere – university and town – are closely interconnected.
