In case the student doesn't have a CEFR certificate but his/her French language skills are good enough, a Skype interview with the LEOs of UCLouvain/ULB/ULiege will be arranged and they will test if the student's level of French is enough for the clerkship.
In other universities (Leuven, Ghent, VUB and Antwerp), patients speak mostly Dutch (also often French at the VUB), but younger patients often speak English. However, they are not obligated to do so.
*Please be on time every day. Respect the work hours and your tutor. If you are not going to the hospital, you need to warn the tutor in advance and ask for permission. If you do not respect these rules, your internship can be cancelled as this will greatly affect our relationship with the departments.
*Because Belgium is a secular country, some hospitals enforce a very strict neutral dress code. This means it might not be allowed to wear a headscarf, a necklace with a small cross or a kippah inside the hospital grounds.
