Note that you need to start the process in good time, because the VAE procedure can take several months! Think about planning your VAE application.
Remember that admission procedures precede registration, so apply well in advance. We recommend that you seek information as from March.
Admission procedures must be distinguished from registration procedures.
Pre- registration /VAE admission procedure /Jury decision/ Registration procedure
Before starting the procedure, you must apply for admission online.
The timing and the procedure for entry through VAE are specific to the course for which you are applying. Some programmes require you to attend collective information sessions, others demand written tests following a specific timetable (as from March for some programmes). Please inquire of the programme concerned for the exact entry procedures.
As soon as your admission through VAE has been approved by the jury, you will receive an authorisation for registration issued by the faculty. Once equipped with this authorisation, you should finalise your registration online.
All registration procedures can be found on the Registration Service pages.
Note the closing dates for registration:
30 April 2019: closing date for completion of online registration application for students without European Union nationality who are not resident in Belgium.
31 August 2019: closing date for completion of online registration application for students with European Union nationality who are not resident in Belgium.
