Enrolment modification - Reorientation

SIC

How do I change my enrolment and what are the deadlines ?

There are several ways for students to change their enrolment, each of which has a specific time frame.
Below, the Enrolment Office will explain the procedure to follow, if :

You wish to modify your enrolment?

You wish to make a reorientation during the academic year?

You wish to apply after 30 September?

You wish to withdraw from UCLouvain ?

Modification of enrolment

Up to and including 30 September, any student may, in compliance with the legal conditions of access and financeability, modify his or her registration and change course.

By way of derogation, this possibility is extended to students enrolled in the first year of the first cycle and is subject to a specific procedure:

  •     Modification of enrolment until 31/10 included
  •     Reorientation until 15/02 included.

The steps to be taken by the student concerned by one of the first three cases are described below.

Up to and including 30 September

For whom?

Students already enrolled at UCLouvain who wish to add and/or delete a programme in which they are registered.

How to apply?

The request to modify an enrolment must be made using the modification form, which must be filled in as explicitly as possible.

ATTENTION: Students of non-EU nationality and students of EU nationality who have a non-Belgian access degree must submit a new application online in accordance with the established registration calendar.

Special conditions for certain bachelor's degrees

Access to certain programmes is subject to special conditions:

  • Admissions exam: First enrolment in a bachelor’s degree in engineering concentrating on either civil engineering or architectural engineering
  • Limited enrolment (KINE, VETE, LOGO, MD, DENT): First enrolment in a bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy and rehabilitation, veterinary medicine, psychology and educational sciences, speech therapy, medicine and dentistry
