Sharing minds, changing lives!

VLIR-UOS facilitates and funds academic cooperation through programmes and projects which aim at sharing knowledge and expertise between Flanders and the South. Academic quality and development relevance are key here.

 

What kind of scholarships?

 

Every year, with the support of the Belgian Directorate General for Development Cooperation (DGDC), VLIR-UOS awards scholarships to students from developing countries to study one of the 15 International Course Programme (ICPs) or one of the 6 International Training Programme (ITPs).

 

Each year there are a maximum of 180 scholarships available for first-year ICP students and a maximum of 70 scholarships for ITP participants.

 

ICPs are master programmes, lasting one or two academic years, all of which lead to a master's degree. They focus on specific problems of developing countries. The main target group for the courses are students from developing countries, although the courses can also be attended by Belgian students or students from other countries.

 

ITPs are short-time training programmes whose main focus is transferring skills rather than knowledge. The International Training Programmes are designed for people from developing countries with a certain degree of professional experience.

 

Study in Flanders and make a difference at home!

 

The ICPs and ITPs target people from the South with a responsible position in civil society (at a university, school, NGO, ministry, etc).

 

The ICPs aim to provide a training in such a way that the knowledge that the students acquire is disseminated and applied in the home institution and country of origin.

 

The ITPs aim at transferring knowledge and skills, and create the possibility for cooperation and networking.
