Hasselt University

History

  • 1973: The Limburg University Centre (LUC for short) – the predecessor of Hasselt University - officially opens to students in Diepenbeek, two years after the legal authorisation of the creation of an autonomous university institution in Limburg. LUC starts with six programmes: mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, dentistry and medicine.
  • 2005: LUC is renamed Hasselt University.

Education

Hasselt University’s approach to education is unique. We encourage students to look beyond books and classrooms. We equip them with knowledge and skills. Action and interaction. Thinking and doing. Intensive guidance. That is what being a student at UHasselt is all about. Our alumni are critical, engaged, agile and versatile professionals.

Research

  • Hasselt University has chosen to concentrate a large proportion of its research resources in a number of research institutes. The institutes aim to cover the entire research spectrum, from fundamental research via strategic basic research to the building of concrete applications. Innovative research and the valorisation of it are therefore important components of the university’s research policy.
  • In order to respond to social and economic challenges, the university chooses to focus research on a number of priority areas. These priority areas are chosen from opportunities that present themselves at regional, national and international level.
