Before you apply

Before you apply to follow courses at VUB, you always need permission from VUB, as well as your current school.

Attention: Were you a guest student during the previous academic year? Guest students cannot re-enrol via the SelfService, and need to fill out the form again if they wish to take courses at VUB again.
