    How to apply as a guest student

    At some points, the student administration differs for the VUB guest students from those of regular VUB students. What is important to know?

    Deadlines to register as a guest student

    • 8 October for the 1st semester
    • 15 February for the 2nd semester

    Before you apply

    1. The main requisite is that you have permission of both universities, your home university and the VUB, to enrol.
