    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

    • 1st semester and full year courses: 19 October 2021
    • 2nd semester courses: 13 March 2022
    • Traineeship/Internship/PhD Students: no deadline, apply at least one week before you start

    Before you apply

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

    Attention! If you were a guest student last year, you cannot re-enroll via SelfService. If you're taking courses at VUB again this year, you have to fill in the form again. 

    Available courses

    Below you will find a PDF file per VUB faculty with the available courses.
