We warmly welcome you!

Enrolments (including the pre-registrations) for the academic year 2021-2022 will start on 1 July 2021. 

Please note that the procedure to enrol for 2021-2022 can be different from the one below.  Check back for updates.

Enrolments for the academic year 2020-2021 have ended except for PhD students.  PhD students can enrol until the end of May 2021. 

If you fulfil the admission criteria you are ready to enrol.

When you enrol at the University of Antwerp you also sign a contract with the university. This means that you commit to obtaining a degree or credits for the programme or programme components you enrol in.

Not a degree student?
Do you deviate from the standard 'enrolment as a degree student'?  Please check this page.

You enrol in 3 steps and you do everything remotely.

(we do provide help if necessary)

1. Complete and sign the online preregistration, and send in your enrolment file 

Start by completing the online preregistration and follow the instructions in the form.

In order to know how you should submit your file (digitally or by post), the question below is important!  The answer will also give you important information about which documents your enrolment file should contain.  Important, do not mix the two ways of sending!

Can we verify your degree digitally?

We can verify your degree digitally if one of the following situations applies to you:

  • You have obtained a Flemish degree
    Check if your degree is available as authentic information (and not as a declaration of honour) in the Leer- en ErvaringsbewijzenDatabank LED (login with eID required) of the Flemish Government.  More information can be found here.
  • You have obtained a Dutch degree
    Check if your degree is available in the DUO diplomaregister and send it to us following these instructions.
  • You have received degree equivalence of your foreign degree through NARIC
    Check if NARIC’s degree equivalence decision is a PDF with a secure digital signature or if it is available in the Leer- en ErvaringsbewijzenDatabank LED (login with Belgian eID required) of the Flemish Government (upload in LED planned by the summer of 2020). The NARIC PDF together with a scan of the original degree should be present in your enrolment file.
  • You have a Letter of Acceptance without additional diploma conditions
    If you have gone through the 'admission procedure' for students with a foreign degree and you have received your Letter of Acceptance on which there are no extra conditions with regard to your degree, we have already verified your degree.  A copy of the Letter of Acceptance should be present in your enrolment file.
  • You have obtained a degree at the University of Antwerp
    If you have obtained a degree at the University of Antwerp (or at one of its predecessors (RUCA, UFSIA, UIA)) we can check your degree in our own records.
  • You have obtained an International Baccalaureat Diploma (awarded by the "Office du Baccalauréat international")
    Ask you school to give permission to the University of Antwerp to check your results online.  In that case, you only have to complete your enrolment file wit a scan of your diploma.  We can verify your diploma online.
  • You have a degree from another educational institution that has a digital verification platform
    Check if your educational institution has a digital platform on which your degree can be verified and if your degree contains instructions for verification.  A scan of your degree and the instructions should be present in your enrolment file.
    Please note that the degree should be in Dutch, English, French or German. If this is not the case, a legalized translation in one of this languages is required and you will need to submit your file by post.


This works! My degree can be verified digitally.
Submit your enrolment file through the helpdesk.

Too bad, my degree cannot be verified digitally.
Submit your enrolment file by post.


2. Wait for a confirmation…

After your enrolment file has been processed, you will receive a document with the confirmation of your enrolment and your student account.

In the document you will also find information for the payment of the tuition fee. By submitting your enrolment file, tuition fees are owed.

3. Pay your tuition fee and upload a photo for your student card in SisA

Do this as soon as possible as we can only make your study card and send it to your postal address after you have done this. Your student card with your student number and photo is unique and your personal property. Make sure you always have it with you on campus. You use the student card for exams, the student restaurant, to buy study material ….
