Welcome to international students and researchers at ULiège!

1108 international students and researchers have joined the University of Liège since the beginning of the 2019-2020 academic year.


or the twelfth consecutive year, ULiège organized a welcome evening for new international students and researchers. On 22 October 2019, nearly 150 newcomers gathered at the Cité Miroir, in the heart of the city of Liège.

The evening offered an opportunity to meet and greet fellow international students and researchers along with the university’s leadership, representatives from eleven faculties and administrative services and members of the embassies and the consular corps.

In his welcome address, Rector Pierre Wolper stressed the importance of creating an interpersonal network, and how the legendary conviviality of Liège, but also its cultural assets (theatres, concert halls, museums...), can contribute to its development.

Bernard Piette, Honorary Consul General of the Netherlands and President of the Consular Corps of the Province of Liege, while also recalling Liege's festive reputation, pointed out that the consular representatives in Liege were at the disposal of the visiting students and researchers.

A venue where debates and meetings between people and cultures are often hosted, the Cité Miroir was the ideal setting for this pleasant evening. Participants were also able to visit the remarkable Darwin the Original exhibition, which runs until February 2, 2020

The event was also part of the Year of France at the University of Liège.
