Make your expat project in Leuven successful

Located in the Flemish Brabant, Leuven is a small Dutch-speaking city. It is famous for its beer, as well as its picturesque landscapes and its cobbled streets.

Leuven's population is rather young, especially due to the presence of many local and international students, which makes it an ideal destination for expatriation. Remember that European Union nationals do not need a visa to settle here.
