    Your study path

    As a student you can shape your own study path. If you need help, you can always fall back on your learning path counsellor who is there to inform, advise and guide you.

    Course registration

    As soon as your enrolment at VUB is finalised, you can register for courses via Student Selfservice. In order to be eligible to take a course, you usually have to meet certain enrolment requirements. Please make sure to take a look at these pre- and co-requisites before you register for courses.

    The faculty is only able to register for courses on your behalf in case you passed a course (=min 10/20) and you want to take a follow-up course in the second semester.
