    What about your Paid Educational Leave as a working student?


    => What changes for you, now that all classes are digital?

    For Paid Educational Leave, all hours of class (videoconferences, assignments and corrections, modules, online platform use) from a distance will exceptionally be equated to hours present in class.

    Your attendance lists need to be submitted digitally during this period, not via mail. You can send them in at studentenadministration@vub.be.

    If you decide to quit a course, your right to PEL will limited according to the hours of class you already followed or the remaining number of credits enrolled. If you take more PEL than you are entitled to, it can be sanctioned. Before quitting a course, please read up on our government's websites below and/or contact Student Social Services.
