Legal dispositions

The following rules are enacted by the Federal State or the French Community of Belgium:

Participation decree

Decree of the French Community of Belgium of September 21, 2012 relating to student participation and representation in higher education

It is this legal text that establishes student participation in the faculty and university bodies of the French Community. Before June 2003 - date of the first version of this decree - the participation of students in the various decision-making bodies of universities was not compulsory, but depended on the good will of the university authorities. Currently, thanks to this decree, each decision-making body must be composed of at least 20% of students (25% for teaching bodies).

Law on UCLouvain and ULB

Law of 12 August 1911 granting legal personality to the "Catholic University of Louvain — Katholieke Universiteit te Leuven", to the "Free University of Brussels" and to the "Vrije Universiteit Brussel", and authorizing the "Catholic University of Louvain — Katholieke Universiteit te Leuven” to create a French-language university and a Dutch-language university, as modified by the law of May 28, 1970 and the decree of March 31, 2004.

This law gave legal personality to UCL and ULB; they therefore have a special legal status (like the FPMs), which is neither that of a state university (ULg and UMons), nor that of an ASBL (UNamur and Saint-Louis University).

​Landscape decree

Decree of the Wallonia-Brussels federation of 18 December 2013 defining the landscape of higher education and the academic organization of studies

It is via this text that the geographical poles and the ARES have been implemented in the French Community; it therefore gives fairly complete details of the various aspects of the organization of studies (baccalaureate, master's, doctorate, etc.).
