Admission and enrolment

Check the access requirements to ensure that you are eligible to start the programme. Only applicants with an academic Bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy or with a certificate of our bridging programme are eligible to start the Master’s programme. All other candidates will be advised to enrol in the bridging programme first.

If you don't have a Bachelor's degree from a higher education institution in Belgium, the Netherlands or Luxembourg, you need to follow an admission procedure, before you can enrol.

Otherwise, you can go straight through to enrolment.


You have to submit your admission application via Mobility-Online, our online application platform. Make note of the deadlines!

Tuition fee reductions for non-EEA nationals

The University of Antwerp does not grant scholarships. However, the university does participate in several programmes that offer scholarships.


It is sometimes possible to receive an exemption from a programme component. This means you don’t have to sit an exam for that particular programme component in order to obtain your degree.

You can request exemptions on the basis of:

An EVK doesn’t automatically entitle you to an exemption. Based on the certificates you provide, the faculty will compare the EVK with the programme component you are supposed to take. Take into account that credit certificates are only valid for five years.

If you are granted an exemption, you will not receive a credit certificate for that programme component and your diploma supplement will state that you received an exemption for it.
