Important preliminary information:

  1. Passing exams for individual courses does not result in acquiring the related credits, nor in obtaining a degree or validating an entire academic year after multiple exams are passed. However, passing exams for individual courses does entitle you to a certificate of achievement, i.e. a transcript provided by the faculty office.
     
  2. The minimum registration fee is now €139,10, which includes up to 10 credits worth of courses. This means you can, for instance, enrol in one or two 5-credit courses, or a single 10-credit course. Each additional credit will cost €13.91. The maximum number of credits per academic year is set to 20, which means the maximum registration fee—for 20 credits—is €278.20.
     
  3. Enrolments are final. Absolutely NO changes may be made after the first class of the course(s) in which you have enrolled. Registration fees for individual courses are non-refundable.
     
  4. Incomplete forms will NOT be accepted.
     
  5. Forms sent by post or e-mail will not be accepted.
     
  6. Courses from the Health Cluster programmes are not eligible for this type of enrolment.
     
  7. Enrolments for 1st-term courses (including courses that begin in the 1st term and continue into the 2nd) are closed.
    Enrolments for 2nd-term courses are open until February 28.

Procedure for people who are not enrolled as full-time ULB students and for federal civil servants (examination for access to ‘Niveau A’ positions).
Note for civil servants who wish to enrol in order to sit a competitive civil service examination: there is no established list of courses for these examinations. You are responsible for finding courses related to your position in the course catalogue. All courses are open to this student profile, provided the relevant authorisations are obtained as outlined below.

Note for students who are enrolled full-time in another higher education institution: you may only choose courses from the study cycle in which you are enrolled. Course credits corresponding to higher cycles will not be validated.
 
YOUR ENROLMENT IN 4 STEPS:

First step : The form
Print the enrolment form.

Step 3: Obtain permission from the faculty’s authorities
The form must then be approved by the faculty’s authorities. This means you must visit the office of the faculty that offers the course(s) chosen.
