From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Katholieke Universiteit Brussel (English: Catholic University of Brussels) is a Flemish university located in Brussels, founded in 1969 as University Faculties St Aloysius (UFSAL), in many ways the equivalent of a liberal arts college. Teaching was primarily in Dutch. It became a university in the early 1990s. It only ever awarded basic undergraduate degrees, which in the older Belgian system of a four-year licenciate meant students had to go on to other universities to complete their courses of study.

In the late 90s, as a result of politically-fuelled doubts about the university's survival, student levels fell drastically, with a knock-on effect on government funding. In 2007 the university merged with a number of other tertiary institutions in Brussels (see European University College Brussels), and now has a separate existence only as a legal fiction for accreditation and funding purposes.
