Student Testimonials


Visa Requirements

Visa application for international students

  • Upon successful admission into the programme, students requiring a visa to study at UBI must make a first payment of EUR 5.750 to continue the enrolment process. UBI must receive the payment in full before providing any official documents (e.g.: enrolment, registration, etc.) that might be required in the visa application process. The payment covers the tuition fees for the first semester (EUR 5.400) plus an administrative fee (EUR 350). The tuition fees are fully refundable in case of visa rejection or a deferral/withdrawal before the start of the programme. The administrative fee is non-refundable.
  • Visa students that want to secure a place in the programme first, and continue the enrolment process later, have the option to make a down payment of EUR 1.000, and pay the remaining fees later, but before the start of the programme. The down payment is non-refundable in case you decide not to study at UBI, except for circumstances in which for medical and/or other legitimate reasons (e.g.: visa rejection) you are not able to start your studies with UBI.
  • Study VISAs observe a difficult process and take several months to process, it is therefore important for applicants to consider this delay upon application and prior to the start of the semester.
  • For further financial information, please see “UBI’s Financial Terms & Conditions for Students”.

Sufficient means of subsistence for visa students

  • Visa students are required to provide proof of sufficient means of subsistence as part of the visa application process. These funds are aimed at proving that students have the minimum amount required to cover living costs, studies and repatriation costs.
  • For the 2023-2024 academic year in Belgium, the minimum required fund is 789 X 12 months = EUR 9,468.
  • Important note: it is recommended that this fund be safely secured in a blocked account, for which UBI can help applicants set up.
  • For UBI’s regulation on subsistence funds, please see “UBI Proof of subsistence regulation”.
  • For any additional information concerning subsistence funds, please refer to the official Immigration Office Website
