Meeting the general entry requirements
For entry into a Master's programme, the minimum requirement is a 180 ECTS Bachelor's degree.
Meeting the English requirement
Applicants with a completed upper secondary degree from Belgium may meet the English language requirement if they've studied English according to the ASO / Enseignement general / Allgemeinbildende Sekundarunterricht and the TSO / Enseignement technique / Technische Sekundarunterricht curricula. This requirement can be met through an assessment of the year of graduation and the number of English courses taken.
If you’re documenting your English based on your upper secondary studies, you must provide upper secondary documents in order to demonstrate you meet the requirement. Please submit your documents as indicated at the information page for application to bachelor's.
You can also demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through certain university studies, or an internationally approved English test.
