Academic year 2023-2024 - Courses & Internships

  • French level: your level must be at least B1 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages to follow courses in Medicine. Note that in Dentistry, your French level must be at least B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages as you will start rapidly the internships.
  • Courses : to follow courses, you can do a one semester or a full academic mobility at our Faculty of Medicine (September 15 to June 30). 
    • Theoretical lessons will start on September 11th, 2023. Exams can last until June 30. Students must arrive in Brussels at the latest on October 20th. After this date, we will refuse them.
    • Courses are available in Medicine from the 3rd year to the 6th year - in Dentistry from 3rd year to 5th year - in Biomedical Sciences from 2nd year to 5th year.
    • To get the credits, students must take and pass the exams (minimum grades to get: 10/20)
    • Online Learning Agreement changes can be done only during the 1st month after the beginning of the academic year. As you can choose courses from different years, there can be possible schedule conflicts.
    • To check your timetable, go on TimeEdit.
    • Different available programs: 
  • Credits ECTS: an academic year (courses/internships) represents normally 60 credits in total. We consider that 45 credits for courses during a full academic year mobility is a good average (3 internships of 6 ECTS can also be added).
  • Internships:
    • Internships in Dentistry : choice will be made with the Academic Coordinator - internships of 2 months.
    • Internships in Medicine : students will have to encode the desired services/hospitals in order of preference via an online system 3 times per year which will assign them an internship according to the available places in the hospitals. The ranking is done randomly so there is no certainty of getting internships in the desired services. Internships are not compulsory. It will not be possible to organize internships in each topic desired by the student.
    • The internships will only be possible in: pathological anatomy, anesthesiology, anesthesiology resuscitation, cardiology, surgery, cardiac surgery, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, orthopedic and traumatological surgery, plastic surgery, reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery, thoracic surgery, vascular surgery, endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, hematology, IMG - Medical imaging, infectious diseases, internal medicine, nuclear medicine, nephrology, neurosurgery, neurology, ophthalmology, ENT, pulmonology, PSY-psychiatry, IMG - radiology-medical imaging, intensive care, emergencies, urology.
    • Credits : 1 internship = 4 weeks in the same service = 6 ECTS. It is possible to do 3 internships of 4 weeks during the P2, P3 and P4 periods (in December, March and April). 
    • Internship hours : clinical work lasts 8 hours/day so 40 hours/week full time (it means during the morning and the afternoon), minimum 5 days per week plus duty periods.
    • Occupational Medical Service : in order to do an internship at Erasme Hospital, it is compulsory to provide this certificate completed by the medical service of your university or your doctor. The certificate has to be sent by e-mail to the Occupational Medical Service of Erasme Hospital before the start of your mobility:
    • Holidays : no days off during the internships.
  • Administrative registration : the registration as exchange student at ULB is compulsory at your arrival. The Erasmus Office will contact you by e-mail few weeks before your arrival to inform you of the welcoming appointment.
  • Insurance : you will be covered by the ULB insurance during all your academic activities (courses & internships) when registrated at ULB.
