On registering at Hasselt University, students conclude an entry agreement. Students can choose between three contract types: a degree contract, a credit contract or an exam contract.
In general, students who register for a bachelor's programme for the first time will conclude a degree contract. This is the case because most students intend to obtain a degree. If you only register to obtain a credit certificate for one or more programme components, a credit contract will apply. Lastly, it is also possible to conclude an exam contract, in order to just take exams, in which case you are not entitled to also attend educational activities.
