Enrolment requirements

Check the enrolment requirements for your courses (only in Dutch). You always take all the subjects of a lower year before you register subjects from a higher year. Students in a bridging or preparatory programme do not have to take these registration requirements into account. 
No idea what that means? Check this info.

Philosophy and Moral Sciences

There are few registration requirements within the Bachelor of Philosophy and Moral Sciences (in your elective module, check the order in which you have to take your courses). You always first take the courses of a lower year before you register courses from a higher year. You take the paper Philosophy and Moral Sciences at the end of your course when you can actually graduate.

Programme changes

Programme changes may take place annually. Some of them are rather limited (e.g. a change of title of a course) and have no further impact on your study path. Others are more drastic (e.g. changes in the number of credits, merging of two courses, creation of a new course...) and can have an impact on the further course of your study programme or year programme.

If a programme change has an impact on your track, you will be informed of it by e-mail at the start of the new academic year.

Completing programme after a break

Were you previously registered at the VUB for a certain programme, but were you unable to complete it due to circumstances? We will help you further.

Intake file

If you were absent for a longer period of time, the programme may have changed a lot, and the subjects you already obtained may no longer correspond with the current programme. We will draw up an intake file for you so that you know what you are starting with and which subjects you still need to pass to obtain your diploma. You can already have a look at the current programme in the online programme outline.

How to request such file?

Fill in the Dutch form

The deadlines to fill in the form are:

  • September 1 for applications before the start of the new academic year.
  • February 1 for applications for the start of the second semester.

As the inflow file is often a complex custom-made work, and moreover needs to be approved by the programme, this often takes a lot of time. We try to provide you with clarity on which courses you still need to take at least before the start of classes. Do not wait for the decision of the intake file and apply as soon as possible.

Re-enrollment not allowed after study progress decision

Exceptional admission to the programme

Do you not meet the formal admission requirements for the programmes (link naar FAC LW programma's) or can you not demonstrate that you meet the Dutch language requirements, but do you think you have sufficient prior knowledge to start one of these programmes?  In this case, you can always submit an application for exceptional admission.

What do you need to do?

Fill in this Dutch form

Please make sure you motivate your application!  You can only submit one application per course and you cannot change your application after submission. Only the information you provide in this form and the documents you submit to us will be taken into account for your application.

After completing the form you will receive an email with further instructions on how to submit your documents (diploma and possibly language certificate). Only when you have also submitted your documents before the deadline will your application be processed further. Didn't receive an email? Check your spam folder! You have to send us both your application and your documents before the deadlines below.

  • 1 September for applications before the start of the new academic year.
  • 1 February for applications for the start of the second semester.

For a smooth processing of your further registration, we strongly advise you to register for the programme of your choice as soon as possible, and to register at least before the deadline. So it is best not to wait for an answer to your application first.
