The travel blog Omio (formerly GoEurope) has listed Leuven in its top-5 of best European destinations to study abroad. Omio says: "It was a tough call deciding where to spend a semester abroad. Although our minds may wander to thought’s of spending a college term in romantic Europe, when it boils down to it, not every European city is best-suited to college students. Leuven is one of the European hot-spots to study!"
The travel blog calls Leuven a "small but true student city, with just under half its population comprising students! The university is dotted with parks, bars and cafes, leaving you with almost unlimited student hangout spots. And with each faculty boasting its own student-run “Fak Bar”, cheap beers and impromptu get-togethers are never far off".
