Elizabeth Deschene, Study Abroad student from Minnesota State University Moorhead

When trying to pick at which school to study abroad, I acknowledged that the place needed to fit a lot of criteria.  Vesalius has not let down my expectations.

The courses offered have been comprehensive and fascinating. The professors are thought-provoking and well-prepared. Brussels provides plenty of opportunities to get involved at the community level in order to practice French with locals. My internship experience has been a challenging but very rewarding experience. All around, studying abroad in Brussels has provided me with all the opportunities I needed in order to feel that my higher education experience was complete.

One of the neatest things about Brussels is the international atmosphere.  It is not only a European city, but a cosmopolitan one. Each day, it is easy to make friends with people from all over the world. The other unique thing about Brussels is the central location.  It is in the centre of Western Europe, which makes international travel really easy to all neighbouring countries. If I had to pick again where to study abroad, I would choose the same.
