* Before a public document (like a diploma) can be used in a country other than the one where it was issued, the origin of the document must be authenticated. It is required by the Belgian government to include a legalised copy of your degree certificates and academic transcripts in your application for a study programme at Hasselt University.
A certified true copy of a document, is a photocopy of a primary document, which has a confirmation that it is a true copy. An authorised civil cervant confirms that the copy of the diploma is conform to the original.

Once your documents (electronic + hard copy) have been received and your online file is complete, your application will be submitted to the board of admission who will decide on its admissibility. After the scholarship deadline (extended until 24 March 2017), all received applications will be reviewed by a board of admission who will rank the applications according to the VLIR-UOS selection criteria.

The top 12 applications will be submitted to VLIR-UOS for scholarship approval. Once VLIR-UOS has approved the scholarship selection made by Hasselt University, the selected students will automatically be notified by VLIR-UOS (as of end May/June). Applicants who were not selected, will be notified by Hasselt University in the same period.
Application forms that are incomplete, illegible or arrive at Hasselt University later than the application deadline, will be rejected.

In case you are academically admitted but at the same time not selected for a VLIR-UOS scholarship, you are allowed to join the Master of Transportation Sciences and attend the programme on your own financial means (e.g. self supported, supported by your employer or other).
