Enrolling as a new student?

Great! We warmly welcome you!

If you fulfil the admission criteria you are now 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 5 steps and in 2020, you do everything remotely.

(we do provide help if necessary)

1. Online preregistration

At the end you will get a document – your preregistration form – that contains all the relevant information for your enrolment.

2. Sign your preregistration form and send in your enrolment file

Enrolments for the academic year 2020-2021 will take place between 1 July and 14 October 2020. Send in your enrolment file digitally or by post between those dates.
Please note that as of 1 October, the faculty may restrict your study programme. We advise you to send your enrolment file to the Registrar’s Office before the academic year starts (21 September 2020).

In order to know if you can submit your file digitally, two questions are important!  The answers will also give you to important information about which documents your enrolment file should contain.

enrolment steps 3 - 6

3. Wait by your letterbox for a package…

After your enrolment file has been processed, you will receive a welcome package with the confirmation of your enrolment, your student account and the starter’s brochure that should guide you into the academic year.

In your welcome package you will find instructions for the payment of the tuition fee and for uploading your photo. By submitting your enrolment file, tuition fees are owed.

4. Pay your tuition fee and upload a photo for your student card

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 ….

5. Put together your course list

After enrolment, you need to put together your course list so you can participate in lessons and exams. You do this using the SisA selfservice module. Register for the programme components you wish to take during this academic year. If you have any questions or problems relating to this registration procedure, please contact the faculty which is responsible for your programme.

This new procedure does not mean that in the academic year 2020-2021 there will only be distance teaching. The University of Antwerp finds live interaction between students and lecturers and among students very important. As soon as it is safe to do so, the university will continue to organize live teaching in combination with an online offer so as to be able to work flexibly.
