Our ECTS accreditation partner

Ranked 12th in continental Europe and 42th worldwide in the 2023 TIMES Higher Education Ranking, the KU Leuven Faculty of Social Sciences excels in the fields of anthropology, communication sciences, political sciences and sociology.

Its eight research units cover a wide array of issues pertaining to four disciplines. Research in political science focuses on electoral studies, citizenship, the functioning and history of political institutions, and European policy and decision-making – specifically with regard to external policies of the EU in various areas. The research also focuses on peace, conflict and development, politics and society in Eastern Europe, Russia and the Eurasian area since the end of the Cold War. 

The Faculty of Social Sciences has a long-standing tradition in the research and teaching of research methodology. The Faculty co-organises the Quantitative Analysis and Social Data Science programme, a one-year programme aiming to improve the methodological knowledge of students who acquired a Master's degree in behavioural sciences. The Faculty is also the Belgian/Flemish partner and one of the founding members of the European Values Study and the European Social Survey.

The process of the ECTS accreditation is ovenseen by our partner organiser at KU Leuven, Bart Meuleman, who is Full Professor at the Centre for Sociological Research. Bart's research focuses on cultural and socio-economic conflict lines in increasingly diverse societies. He is particularly interested in how increasing migration movements and ethnic diversity affect preferences for welfare redistribution and social justice. His methodological research interests include comparative survey analysis, attitude measurement, structural equation modelling and multilevel models.
