My country is not on the VLIR list. Are there alternative scholarship opportunities ?
I followed my bachelor in English. Does this mean I’m exempted from the language tests ?
Unfortunately only degree holders from specific countries are exempted from a language test. These countries are Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, United Kingdom or the USA. Moreover, students with a degree from a Belgian university are exempted from the language test. All other applications should pass the TOEFL or IELTS test, regardless whether or not they obtained a degree taught in English.
I have a bachelor degree that is not mentioned in the admission requirements, can I still follow the program ?
If you are not sure about your eligibility you can contact the program staff through the contact page on this website.
I am a working student. Are there facilities to take the course part time ?
Do I have to pay for the fieldtrip myself?
Belgian students can apply at VLIR UOS for a scholarship to cover part of the fieldwork costs. For scholarship and self-financing foreign students, there is a small financial support to cover some of the expenses of the fieldtrip. However, this is not guaranteed. The organizing staff will make an effort to reduce the costs as much as possible but students should be prepared to cover (part of) the trip themselves.
