Can I submit my documents via e-mail?

No, this is not possible. Your file will only be assessed when you submit your application via the online application module and send us your required documents by postal mail. (Alternatively you can hand them in person at our Student Administrative Services Centre in Brussels.) 

What do you mean by a certified copy?

Certified copies are copies of the original documents that are certified with a stamp and signature to confirm that they are in line with the originals. You can have your diploma/transcripts certified by the educational institution that issued them or by a Belgian municipality. We also accept copies with an Apostille of the Hague attached. Photocopies (in colour) are not sufficient, you need to send us the actual certified documents.

I still need to complete my secondary school studies can I already apply?

Yes, if you are expected to graduate before the start of the 2021-2022 academic year but still need to complete your secondary school studies at the time of application you can already apply.
Please upload your intermediate transcripts, as well as a document issued by your school that states that you are expected to graduate before the start of the 2021-2022 academic year, as part of your online application. There is no need to send us any documents via postal mail at this time. Please note that your final transcripts and a certificate of graduation will need to be submitted upon enrolment.

Do I need to pay the 75 EUR application fee?

The application fee is one of the application requirements for non-EEA nationals without a long stay residency in Belgium (long stay = residency card of 5 years).  Applicants with an EEA-nationality do not have to pay the application fee.

Can I pay the application fee by credit or debit card/cash/cheque?

The application fee can only be paid by bank transfer. You cannot pay by credit or debit card, cheque or in cash.

Do I need to submit a certificate as proof of my English language proficiency?

Yes, this is a general admission requirement.
Only certain applicants can be exempted. For more information please click here.

How long will the whole application process take?

From the moment we receive your complete application file (online application + required documents by postal mail)  to the moment you receive an outcome on your application, we estimate a total of 3 weeks. 

Please note that due to public holidays this estimated time may be longer. Also bear in mind that Odisee University college is closed from 10 July till 15 August 2021, no applications will be handled during this time.

Do I need a visa to enter Belgium? What steps do I need to take?

More information can be found here.

How much tuition do I have to pay?

All non-scholarship students (EEA and non-EEA) that register for a full-time degree contract pay 961,90 EUR.
You can find an overview of the tuition fees below. 

When do I pay the tuition fee and can I pay by credit card?

Upon registration at our university college, you will receive an invoice from the Student Administrative Services Centre for the fixed part of the tuition fee. Payment must be made within a few weeks. Paying the fee is only possible by bank transfer. The Registrar’s Office does not accept payment by cash, cheques or credit/debit card. Once you have registered your individual study programme you will receive a second invoice by email for the variable part of the tuition fee. 

Can I transfer credits/ apply for exemptions based on my study background?

The transferring of credits is not possible. Exemptions can be granted when the content of the courses you obtained credits for matches with the content of the BBM courses. Before we can give you an indication of your exemptions we first however need to establish that you meet our admission requirements, and receive and assess your complete application file. (Please note: official exemptions can only be granted upon enrolment.)
