KU Leuven: Register at KU Leuven online this year too
Until the 2019-2020 academic year, it was an annual fixture on Leuven’s streets: from mid-August, new students lined up in Naamsestraat to register at KU Leuven. In the University Hall they received a student card and a lot of useful information about student life. Last year this was not possible due to the corona measures, so the university largely switched to an online registration process. This year too, caution is advised and registrations are mainly online.
Since 1 July, new students can register online for the 2021-2022 academic year. The university receives information about diplomas via the government, other information can be uploaded by future students themselves, together with a photo for their student card. Once all information has been processed, they will receive their registration certificate and invoice by e-mail. In addition, they immediately receive a lot of practical information: Where can I rent a bicycle? What does the cultural offer on campus look like? Where can I buy books? …
A taste of student life
Many students also end up in a new living environment. Traditionally, they also explore their future student city in advance. To help them find their way, the university has mapped out walks along all kinds of useful locations and points of interest such as auditoriums and classrooms, libraries, learning centers and student restaurants. In addition, guided tours of the campuses are also organized, each time in groups of ten and supervised by a faculty employee, and there are still information moments on each campus.
“Anyone who needs extra help or explanation is of course very welcome in the University Hall, but by appointment, with respect for the current corona measures.”
– Rector Luc Sels
“We are already looking forward to the start of the new academic year and the arrival of a new batch of students. This year too, registrations are a bit different than we are used to, but last year we proved that such an online registration process works very well,” says Rector Luc Sels. “Anyone who needs extra help or explanation is of course very welcome in the University Hall, but by appointment, with respect for the current corona measures.”
