- You follow a programme which does not entitle you to a scholarship, such as a 2ndMaster.
- you enrolled under a credit contract rather than a degree contract.
- your course is worth less than 27 study credits (and you are not in a diploma year).
- you have already used up your scholarship credit/bonus credit.
Apply to the Scholarships Department (by 1 July of the academic year to which the application relates at the latest), in the following situations:
- If you meet the nationality, financial and study requirements for a scholarship but the reference income of your household exceeds the maximum threshold by a maximum of €3000. You will not receive a scholarship in this case but you will pay reduced tuition fees: you will then pay the almost-scholarship tariff.
- If you meet the nationality, financial and study requirements for a scholarship but your application is refused because the cadastral income or deemed rental value of your property is too high in relation to the reference income (calculated using the KI test) then you are eligible for reduced tuition fees (the almost-scholarship tariff).
Even if you know already that you are in one of these situations and are therefore not eligible for a scholarship, you will still have to submit an application to the Office for Student Affairs to be eligible for reduced tuition fees!
Students with exam contracts and students on Advanced Master programmes are not eligible for reduced tuition fees. This also applies to students on Master programmes that have special tuition fees. Check the website for a complete overview of all tuition fees.
Important information for international students
- If you meet the nationality requirements for receiving a scholarship from the Flemish Community you may, in some cases, be eligible to pay reduced tuition fees. There are a few other (study and financial) conditions.
- If you do not meet the nationality requirements then as a rule you are not entitled to reduced tuition fees. You will need to have sufficient resources of your own to pay your tuition fees.
