Visa for Belgium

  • For visa admittance, students need to have received a formal offer (on meeting the condition of entry -these documents will also be reviewed as part of the visa). Students who are not from an EU/EEA country also need to have:

  • Applicants may need to make an appointment with their consulate or embassy in order to make their application

  • Proof that the student has sufficient financial income or support for the duration of their stay. This must cover healthcare, living, study and accommodation costs as well as the cost of the return ticket. This can be in the form of a certificate, in case of a scholarship offer, an agreement of financial responsibility from their sponsor, or their personal bank statement showing sufficient funds. More details about the sufficient means of subsistence can be found here:

  • A medical certificate stating the student carries no disease that may endanger public health (such as TB, diseases that require quarantine and other infectious diseases)

  • A police certificate of good conduct confirming that the student does not have any prior convictions (if aged over 21). If the student is from the USA, it probably means an FBI background check, which can take up to five months to obtain. 

General information on obtaining a visa as a student in Belgium can be found here:

Please note this is usually a lengthy process, so we advise to start it at least three months prior to the start of the programme. For a September 2020 start, students who choose to start their programme online will still need to secure a visa for a start 'in person' in Feb 2021 for semester 2 (even if circumstances dictate that tuition will continue online closer to that time).
