About Hasselt University
Hasselt University (Dutch: Universiteit Hasselt, UHasselt) is a university with campuses in Hasselt and Diepenbeek, Belgium. It was officially established in 1971, but it was not until 1973 that the university – literally – opened its doors and welcomed its first students. Academic and scientific freedom, social commitment, attention for ethical norms and interpretation – without ideological distinction – are basic principles of its education and research policy.
True to its baseline ‘Knowledge in action’, Hasselt University has grown into an innovative and dynamic university – an institution which provides for a qualified workforce, locally adapted research, appropriate services and technologies for the region. The university has seven faculties (Law, Sciences, Business Economics, Medicine & Life Sciences, Rehabilitation Sciences, Architecture & Arts and Engineering Technology), two Schools (Transportation Sciences and Educational Studies) and six research institutes (which cover a wide range of research areas: biomedical, environmental, statistical, material, transportation research and media technology research).
UHasselt is home to about 6,500 students and 1,400 academic, administrative and technical staff members.
