Deadlines apply for handing in the application file, since a student visa application can take a long time. The complete application file for approval to inscribe based on a foreign degree or diploma certificate has to be handed in at the Education Office by:
June 1st for candidates who need a student visa
July 1st for the other candidates
The normal inscription deadlines apply for candidates with an academic recognition from Naric or a diploma as listed in the Education- and Examination Code
You first need to successfully complete the procedure before being able to receive an official invitation letter to add the visa application. The candidate is responsible for meeting the visa application requirements at the Belgian embassy/consulate. It is advisable to hand in the necessary visa documents as requested by the embassy/consulate at least three months before the start of the academic year deadline (or preparatory language year if applicable).
Other deadlines might apply for the School of Arts, for postgraduate courses or continued education programs.
