Belgium

Why choose Belgium?

Living in Belgium, you’ll get the chance to boost your language skills through exposure to French, German and Flemish too! It's also a great place to be based for travelling to countries such as France, Germany and the Netherlands. Belgium of course has a lot to offer itself too; you’ll have plenty of opportunity to visit its picturesque cities, such as Brussels, Bruges and Liege. 

Beligum is also a politically significant place, being home to both the headquarters of the European Union and NATO.
