    Step 1 - Activating your NetID and password

    Step 3 - Administration after enrolment

    Once you have enrolled, you will automatically receive your student card and registration certificate via mail. You will also need to pay the tuition fee. 

    If you are eligible for a Scholarship from the Flemish Community, you need to apply online for this scholarship. The information is only available in Dutch, but you can also contact Social legal and financial support.

    Step 4 - Arrange your public transport card

    You will receive your student card and a registration certificate in the post after you have enrolled. This is what you will need to request your public transport cards in Brussels. For €12 per year you can explore Brussels by metro, tram and bus with the STIB. If you live in Flanders you can get a cheaper student transport card with the NMBS/SNCF to travel between the university and your home.


    You can consult the timetables by degree programme (e.g. first year of the Master's Programme in Management) or by individual course (e.g. 'Corporate Finance and Investment Analysis').
