Welkom op de nieuwe website over onderwijs en opleiding. De meeste pagina's van deze website bestaan momenteel alleen in het Engels. Zodra we klaar zijn met de vertaling van een pagina in de overige officiële EU-talen, zetten we die online.

Belgium

The Kingdom of Belgium has a federal state structure, organised into three Communities:

  • Flanders - the Flemish Community (Dutch speaking)
  • Wallonia - the French Community (French speaking)
  • a smaller German Community (German speaking) in the eastern part of Belgium

Each Community has its own government and ministry of education. The capital city, Brussels, links to the communities.

For more information, visit the specific profiles for Flanders and Wallonia. The German-speaking community has one autonomous university, the Autonome Hochschule.
