The University of Liege respects the European Bologna process and uses the ECTS course description system and marks transfer. It holds the extended “Education throughout life” charter that is essential for the quality of mobility that it includes in the students’ courses and in its staff’s careers.
The university builds up its projects within the bodies and networks in which it plays an active role.

In Belgium

In Belgium, at state level or at the level of the French Community of Belgium (relevant Belgian authorities in terms of higher education), the ULg takes part in all national and international actions carried out in liaison with the other Belgian universities.

A member of the CIUF (Inter-university Council of the French Community), it is especially involved in international files at the CIRI (Inter-university Commission of International Relations) and the CUD (University Development Commission).

In Europe

Located as it is near the borders of both Germany and The Netherlands, ULg has built up strong interuniversity collaboration networks in the Meuse-Rhine Euregio (Alma), developing a common curriculum in neuroscience as well as cutting-edge scientific synergies. The Greater Region has also been a focus for concerted action with international partners.

Within this framework, it is a member of the University of the Greater Region and of the Greater Region's University Cooperation Charter.

ULg is also a member of the TIME network (double degrees in applied science) as well as of 8 European Erasmus Mundus consortia active in setting up innovative training programs.
Our institution is also a member of the Santander group, which has signed a framework cooperation agreement with FAUBAI (Brazil) and whose president is now the First Vice-Rector A. Corhay. The Santander group helps disseminating best practices concerning mobility. It has developed a website for mobility with Latin America. Within this network, ULg contributes to the Egracons project, aiming at facilitating and standardizing grade conversion for mobile students.

By this way, the ULg insists on the quality of mobility and its procedures. This quality was recognized by the European Commission twice. In 2009, the University of Liège has been awarded the ECTS and DS Labels wich has been renewed for the period 2013-2016.

  • The ECTS label recognises the quality of the welcoming procedures and of the support offered to incoming students
  • The DS Label recognises institutions for the quality of the information wich backs up the issuing of its diplomas and their supplements

Label ECTS 2013-2016 Label DS 2013-2016

The entire support offered to our students is so highlighted. The student is in the heart of our learning approach. The academic programme proposed to student is completed by many services all along his training (study facilities, work methods and time management, ...) This kind of environment is created to offer to students the best conditions to lead their study project and guarantee to the "incoming student" the access to all services proposed by the ULg.


Throughout the world

On the international stage, the University of Liege is a member of the EUA (European University Association) and the AUF (University Agency for the French-speaking world) within which it leads a consortium and runs a course of study in management (Eastern Europe - Bulgaria). ULg has signed the Magna Charta, the ethical charter of the European University Association.

ULg is also a partner in the LATINUS network which brings together 8 universities and 2 colleges from America and Europe. This network aims to promote and support the cultural diversity that characterizes the Latin world, focusing in particular on the spreading of Latin culture and the teaching of Latin languages through the concerted action of its members but also in opening to new partners.
