Assets: universally applied law, international envirnomnent, subsidized education, distant learning
The law of the Roman Catholic Church is universally applied. As a consequence, the Faculty of Canon Law calls on professors with an international reputation, and annually invites a wide range of international guest professors. The concentrated teaching weeks, organised once every semester, are an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with visiting professors and exchange information on issues that transcend national borders.
In addition, the faculty has a large number of international students, including students from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands and several African countries. This international orientation provides a broad perspective on the canonical issues discussed in class.
For nearly 600 years, the Faculty of Canon Law at KU Leuven has been recognised for its excellence in scholarship and teaching. This tradition continues today with a teaching staff made up of internationally recognised scholars.
The Faculty of Canon Law provides many opportunities to students wishing to combine study and work. Distance learning - combined with mandatory participation in the concentrated teaching weeks - is offered for students unable to live and study full-time in Leuven.
The faculty's small scale creates a strong sense of community among students and creates the opportunity for students to meet personally with visiting professors from all over the world.
