Bridging students who graduated from an haute école
The master’s courses to which you can apply are determined by a decree of the government of the French-speaking Community of Belgium (known as the “arrêté Passerelles”), which specifies the additional course units (bridging module of a maximum of 60 credits) integrated into your programme following your initial course, which could have been the bachelier de type court en Haute École, Promotion sociale, or Enseignement supérieur artistique (haute école bachelor’s short course, social advancement, arts higher education).
For more information on available master’s courses, consult Passerelles à l’UCLouvain.
Remember to consult master’s course admission requirements in the course catalogue. You will also find the bridging module’s course unit details.
The faculty organises an information session for its bridging students at the beginning of the academic year.
