Go-Abroad Fair: The world is your playground!

De BuitenlandBeurs is the biggest platform in Belgium regarding study programs, internships, (voluntary) work and language courses abroad. Leading organisations and relevant educational institutions inform visitors on all the aspects and possibilities of an educational and self-enriching stay abroad. 

Reasons to Attend

De BuitenlandBeurs is the number one event in Belgium for anyone wishing to find out about education, internships, work or knowledge enhancement abroad. This gives you a unique opportunity to present your organisation and to meet the thousands of visitors from Belgium from your direct target group.

Market Overview

A unique opportunity to recruit students from Belgium!

In addition to being an extremely fun experience, studying abroad is also a smart move for students. Research conducted by the European Commission has shown that young people who have studied abroad have a better chance of securing a steady job later on. Therefore the Belgium government would like more students to spend an educational period abroad. 

More and more young professionals are adventurous and internationally oriented and want to explore their work skills beyond borders. Belgium employees are popular among the foreign employers because they are flexible, work well together with other cultures and have excellent language skills.

IBA participated at De BuitenlandBeurs in Utrecht in autumn 2015 and we are delighted to see positive results in such a short time.
