Philippe Maryssael's secondary school was Collègue Saint-Pierre à Uccle (Brussels). Latin and mathematics were his main subjects. Philippe successfully passed in June 1980 and decided to study translation (Dutch and English) at the Brussels-based Institut supérieur de traducteurs et interprètes (ISTI), starting in September 1980.

Five years later, he graduated cum laude. In 1998, he attended a post-graduate curriculum in terminology and terminotics at ISTI. He could from then on combine the titles of translator and termonologist/terminotician.
