Take a seat

From the 24th till the 28th of February we open our doors to high school students so that they can experience what life at VUB is really like. That is right! You can pick out a folding chair and follow along with our regular courses. No better way to find out if a certain programme fits your personality, talents and ambitions!

Choose from 7 classes

You can choose between seven tantalizing classes from two of our English-taught bachelor programmes: Social Sciences and Business Economics. Does the idea of attending university courses as a high school student sound daunting to you? No need to fret! You can enter our aulas without much of a fuzz and our students do not mind some extra company. Because you will be attending classes with our regular students, there is a limit to the number of students who can enroll

Frequently asked questions

You are still left with some lingering questions? To make your life easier we have listed some of the most common questions regarding our try-out classes. Click on the question to reveal the answer!

Sometimes mails accidentally get categorised as spam, especially if it is your first time interacting with our mailing tools. Did you already check your spamfolder, but you still cannot find your mail? Then you can send an email to evenementen@vub.be and we will check whether your registration was successful.

This usually happens when there is a problem with the webbrowser or the amount of traffic on our website. To make use of our site, it is best to use Google Chrome or FireFox. If too many students try to enroll at the same time, our webpage may have trouble keeping up, leading to noticeable slowdowns.

Still unable to enroll? Then send an email to evenementen@vub.be, with 'Try-out classes' as your subject and a description of the classes you would like to follow. We will take care of it!

The number of available spots is indeed limited, in order to prevent overstuffed aulas. It does happen sometimes that someone cancels before classes start or has accidentally registered twice. If so, his or her place will be deleted. Therefore, it might be worthwile to check our website from time to time for available slots!

Yes you will. During the week of the try-out classes, you will receive a mail from us with the necessary practical info. Where you need to check in on our campus, for example. You will also receive a confirmation mail after enrolling for one of the try-out classes. Do not delete the confirmation mail before the classes start!

Do not worry, we can do something about that. Make sure you send an email to evenementen@vub.be with your first name, last name and the correct email address.

Then make sure to send a mail to evenementen@vub.be along with the names of the courses you can't attend so that other students can enroll for your coveted spot.

Definitely not. Attending one of the try-out classes is free of charge!

Rarely, but it does happen sometimes that one of our professors falls ill. We will try to alert you as soon as possible, but that is something we cannot always guarantee.
