Thomas More is part of the KU Leuven Association, founded in response to the Bologna Declaration of 1999, which sought to increase synchronisation of higher education in Europe. The KU Leuven Association is an association of the Catholic University of Leuven, 11 University Colleges and the Catholic University of Brussels. Together, they have more than 100,000 students in 23 cities across Flanders.
The KU Leuven Association aims to be a cluster of centres of excellence in areas such as teaching, research and the arts. Its members strengthen each other by exchanging expertise and pooling resources, which enables them to improve the quality of both education and research.
The KU Leuven Association offers a student-centered education, with a broad and diverse range of study and training programmes.
