Mobility and/or Internationalisation outlook

filo2m  2018-2019  Louvain-la-Neuve

Students can stay abroad for one semester as part of an Erasmus ( exchange.

As part of the research focus :
- The option 'sciences, technologies, sociétés' helps the student follow, at another university in the ESST (European Science, Society,Technology) network - Strasbourg or Lund university, in a semester of the master, courses equivalent to 30 credits. Moreover, this option welcomes students from other ESST network universities for the second semester of the second block of the master.
- the "Philosophy of Science" course offers specific research training in this field as part of an inter-university programme between UCL, ULB (Université libre de Bruxelles) and ULg (University of Liège).

The professional focus (open only to students admitted to the Master's in "German and French Philosophy in the European Context") provides students with opportunities for very worthwhile exchanges with other "Europhilosophie" Master's students from both within and outside the EU. This European Master's degree in Philosophy can only be studied at UCL in Belgium.

All students can benefit from the international aspects of the programme: teacher exchanges, annual attribution of part of a course to a foreign professor as part of the Chaire Mercier, development of courses given jointly by UCL and KULeuven professors, teacher and student exchanges as part of Erasmus mundus, Erasmus ( or Mercator.

The professional focus grants students very fruitful exchanges with other students, EU nationals or otherwise, enrolled on the master 'Europhilosophie'. This European master in philosophy is only on the UCL programme in Belgium.

All students can replace one course from their programme with a course of the same level from the HIW or KULeuven master course.
