Finalise your enrolment
Check whether you are eligible for exemptions (if applicable)
As of 1 November 2022 you can start your application for academic year 2023-2024.
Information for acadmeic year 22-23: The application deadline for academic year 2022-2023 is 1 September 2022 ( or 31 January 2023 if you wish to start in our IBM programme). After this date it is no longer possible to apply. So make sure to apply in time, even if there are still documents missing to complete your application.
Make sure to add the following required documents to your application:
- Diploma of secondary and/or higher education + transcript of records (make sure to include an official translation if your diploma(s) is/are not in English, French, Dutch or German);
- (National) entrance examination(s) + translation- only applicable if this is also necessary to access higher education in your country.
- Color copy of identity card/passport (front- and back);
- Proof of English proficiency (you can see here which language certificates we accept);
- Proof of Dutch proficiency (only applicable if you want to start in a programme taught in Dutch).
Within three weeks, we will send you an email saying whether or not you meet the admission requirements.
If you meet the requirements, the educational institution itself must send a certified copy of your diploma of secondary and/or higher education and transcript or records to our university of applied sciences, in a sealed envelope.
Another option is that you ask your secondary/higher institution to send us (firstname.lastname@example.org) an official email ( with stamp and signature) confirming that you have graduated + date of graduation + official name of your diploma. Make sure that the name of your school + complete address is mentioned as well in this email.
If you are already in Belgium, you can also come by our office (only possible after appointment!) with your original documents.
After we have received and verified these documents, you will receive an answer confirming the approval or rejection of your application.
Payment of the tuition fee will be done online as well. Upon enrolment you will receive an email with further instructions. First you will need to pay the fixed fee. This amounts to €115.80 for a grant student and €253.60 for an almost or non-grant student. By the end of October you will pay the rest of the tuition fee. All information about the tuition fee can be found here.
Contact a Student Support staff member if you have any questions about the grant amount or other financial questions.
Do you wish to request exemptions or follow a shortened track ? Starting in distance learning or via a SWITCH study track? Want to study via a credit- or exam contract or start in February? In all these cases you should contact the Study Track Manager of the study programme prior to your enrolment to check the possibilities. You can find an overview of the Study Track Managers per study programme here. Together you determine your curriculum.
