The Brussels Free University (VUB) may become a multilingual university.
The new Rector of the Free University of Brussels (VUB) said that the institution should become multilingual. We are a university in which teaching is in Dutch, however we must position ourselves more as a multilingual university in order to better prepare students for a new international reality, & # 187; said Caroline Powels to De Standaard.
Powells stated that other languages should be introduced into bachelor’s programs, which are currently taught only in Dutch.
The University already provides a program in English by Master’s degree for engineers. We noticed that students develop a different vision of society by studying subjects in another language, & # 187; she said.
Since this academic year, VUB also offers an English-language bachelor in social sciences, in collaboration with the University of Ghent. Powell would like to expand this type of cooperation with French-speaking partners, as well as with other, for example, German and Italian-speaking institutions.
More than 95% of people in Brussels speak French, more than one-third speak English and about a quarter speak Dutch, & # 187; she said. It would be a mistake to shut yourself off from these other languages, since language is the way to understanding other cultures. & # 187;
