Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


It is very important to correctly register your study pathway. Your tuition fees are calculated based on the selected ECTS credits. Child support and possible student financing are also linked to the number of selected ECTS credits.

1. Registration for a bachelor's, master's, specific teacher training, preparatory or bridging programme with a degree or credit contract  

The fixed part of the tuition fee is payable to the institution for higher education once per academic year. For the calculation of the tuition fee, all registrations of a student for one or more programmes and/or programme components under a diploma or credit contract are treated as one registration. All obtained ECTS credits are added up.

  • Foreign tUL students who receive a scholarship from the Flemish Community of Belgium, or students who are subject to the Belgian tax system or the Belgian system of child support, pay the tuition fees applicable to students with Belgian nationality.
  • Students with a Master Mind Scholarship pay € 105.00.
  • Non-EEA students must pay the full tuition fee before the start of the programme. They also pay a mandatory insurance fee of € 360.00 per year on top of the tuition fee.
2. Other categories  
Outstanding students Students in the last year of secondary education who are also registered for higher education with a credit contract for at least 10 credits pay €52.50.
Exam contract If you register with an exam contract, you'll pay a fixed component of €105.00 and a variable component of €4.00 per selected ECTS credit. A combination of an exam contract and a credit or diploma contract is seen as one individual registration.
PhD registration The tuition fee for the preparation of a PhD is €445.00 for a first registration. Re-registration during the preparation of the PhD is free of charge. The tuition fee for the academic year in which the PhD will be obtained is again € 445.00.
Increased tuition fee in case of insufficient study ECTS credit Students whose study credit is insufficient pay €11.00 per credit they lack. This does not apply to scholarship-rate students and almost scholarship-rate students.
