‘When I had to choose the university where I would study, I chose UNamur.  I have never regretted my decision – the quality of relationships with the professors, a fabulous city where I still live now, the friendliest student life in Belgium…  I invested a lot of time in student societies, which complemented my university studies really well.  I really appreciated the broad curriculum in Business Engineering.  I was also able to graduate with a double Master, because of the partnership between UNamur and KULeuven.  The quality of my studies has enabled me to progress on to doing a doctorate at KULeuven.’ - Anthony, graduate
