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.


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.

If your application has been approved, you will receive an email invitation to pass by our office. We will ask you to:

  1. Make an appointment via this calendar
  2. Bring your documents:
    • Identity card or passport
    • Health insurance valid in Belgium
    • Original degree or certified copy
    • If applicable: your visa
    • If applicable: the certificate confirming your scholarship
  3. Go through the enrolment procedure with one of our colleagues.


Students who require a letter of acceptance (i.e. non EEA students) are instead referred to this website

Important! Don't come to the enrolment office without the necessary documents. We will not be able to enroll you.


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.
