"Studying abroad offers students a rare opportunity to expand their horizons and open their minds. There is no doubt that an education in a foreign country opens many doors for the future, but more importantly it is a sure way to discover and develop your potential while also living for today !"



PascalPascal Carré 

Co-founder & Director for Belgium



After studying languages in Belgium, Pascal opened his langauge travel agency in Brussels in 1992. Study Experience was a logical step forward because students would return looking for study opportunities abroad. In a nutshell, Study Experience's mission is to provide a quality counselling service to people looking to pursue their higher education abroad. In 2015, Pascal was accredited by the British Council as a counsellor for higher education abroad. 

"Language travel and training abroad changed my life. It all changed my vision of the world and made me learn about new cultures. Travelling and communicating in a foreign language became my exciting way of life. There is no better deal than investing in one's education and being trained abroad."

We are in the fantastic position of being able to promote so many excellent schools and universities, that cover pretty much all possible study areas and what I love the most about this job is being able to tailor propositions for each student's unique project !"
