Studiegeld

Tuition fee

The tuition fee in higher education is the amount you pay on a yearly basis to be eligible to study. The amount you pay, depends on different factors:

  • whether you fulfill the nationality and financial conditions in order to be eligible for a study grant from the Department of Scholarships of the Flemish Community;
  • the number of credits you register for;
  • the amount of your 'learning credit'.

There are three tariffs that apply to the tuition fee:

  • The regular tuition fee: this is the amount you pay if you are not eligible for a study grant from the Flemish Community and thus your tuition fee cannot be reduced.
  • The partially reduced tuition fee: this is the amount you pay if the income, on which the calculation for the study grant is based, is maximum € 3.209 (amount 2019-2020) above the maximum income border as set by the Department of Scholarships.
  • The reduced tuition fee: this is the lowest amount of the tuition fee. It is always a fixed sum irrespective of the number of credits you register for and the amount of your learning credit. You pay this tuition fee if you fulfill the nationality and the financial conditions as set by the Department of Scholarships.
    Note!
    In most cases you are also eligible for a study grant from the Flemish Community.

The exact amounts of the tuition fees can be found on following links:

Aanvraag verminderd studiegeld 2019-2020 voor nieuwe studenten

Ontvang je een studietoelage van de Vlaamse overheid, dan betaal je het beurstarief. Heb je geen recht op een studietoelage van de Vlaamse overheid omdat je geen studietoelage- of jokerkrediet meer hebt, omdat je bent ingeschreven met een creditcontract of niet (meer) aan de pedagogische voorwaarden voldoet maar wel aan de financiële voorwaarden? Dan kom je misschien toch in aanmerking voor het beurs- of bijna-beurstarief.

De medewerkers van de sociale dienst kunnen voor jou berekenen welk studiegeldtarief je zal moeten betalen.
