About Us

Our History

The International school of Leuven was founded in 2013 when it opened its doors to just a
handful of students. It was established by IMEC, VIB, KU Leuven and Stad Leuven to meet
the needs of the growing international community here in Leuven. Since our small
beginnings in the playground of a local school we have grown considerably and now have
our home in the Proximus Campus of UCLL in Haasrode, just outside Leuven.
