Are you thinking about applying at VUB? Great idea! Our university is among the best in Belgium and abroad.

We will gladly guide you through the different steps of the enrolment process.

APPLY

First things first. You will need to apply and get permission to study before you can enrol. Please visit this webpage for all the information on how to submit an application.

After submitting your application, the Admissions Office will start processing your file. You will receive email updates concerning the proceedings of your application.

 

ENROL

Important update due to COVID-19.

We would normally ask you to make an appointment and pass by personally. Due to the global pandemic, it is not possible to make an appointment. We will finalise your enrolment online.

The enrolment itself

Contrary to what you are being asked in automated emails, you should not pass by our office to finalise your enrolment. 

We would like to ask you to contact your school so they may directly confirm your diploma at admissions@vub.be . This will allow us to verify your information and allow you to sign the online enrolment contract. 

Visa and health insurance

Belgian embassies and consular posts are no longer issuing visas for an unknown period of time. You will not need a visa into Belgium to enrol at the VUB. Please note however that this is obligatory for the Belgian Government should classes recommence on campus and you wish to travel to Belgium.

The same goes for the health insurance in Belgium, it is not required to enrol but is required if you travel to Belgium.

For more information on preparing your stay, your visa application, etc. please visit this website.

YOUR NET-ID & COURSE REGISTRATION

Once you have enrolled, and your contract is signed, an e-mail containing your student number and PIN-code will be sent to your e-mail address. With these data you will be able to create you own VUB network identification (NET-ID). You should activate this immediately!

After this, there's only one thing you need to do: register your courses. You can do this online. For more info on how you should do this, visit our student portal.
