About KU Leuven
KU Leuven engages in a free and disinterested search for the truth through its scientific research, education and service to society.
Situated in the heart of Western Europe, KU Leuven has been a centre of learning for almost six centuries. Founded in 1425 by Pope Martin V, KU Leuven bears the dual honour of being the oldest extant Catholic university in the world and the oldest university in the Low Countries.
KU Leuven fulfills its mission by providing high-quality interdisciplinary research and education with a Catholic signature.
