Below you will find more information on the payment of the tuition fee for international students. And what happens with the tuition fee when your visa is denied or when you decide to deregister for individual courses or for the full programme?
Candidates from abroad are invited via email to pay the tuition fee, after admission into one of our programmes. As an international on campus student, you have to pay the full tuition fee at the latest one month before your arrival in Belgium.
Final registration only is possible after payment of the tuition fee.
Students admitted for a distance learning programme will have to pay a first part of the tuition fee, the fixed component, before the final registration. They will receive payment instructions via email.
In November, the tuition fee will be recalculated based on the number of credits a student takes during the current academic year. A second email with payment instructions will be sent to the student’s UHasselt mail address.
Final registration only is possible after payment of the first part of the tuition fee.
How to make the payment?
What after your payment?
Before final registration
When your visa is denied or you cannot finalize your registration at Hasselt University for other reasons, you can ask for a refund of the fees you have paid.
To ask for a refund, send an email to email@example.com with your bank account details (account number and BIC/SWIFT code).
Note that it can take several weeks to process the refund.
After final registration
Always contact your academic advisor first!
When you deregister for courses during the academic year, you will receive a new recalculation of the fees in June. The amount you paid for those courses will be refunded if you deregister timely. You can find the deadline to deregister for course components in your online student file and in the academic calendar.
If you have decided to stop your studies at UHasselt, you must deregister. Deregistration is possible at any time during the academic year. However, in the academic calendar there is a deregistration deadline listed for each educational period.
The reimbursement of the tuition fee depends on the type of contract you're registered with at Hasselt University.
Part of the tuition fees will be reimbursed to students registered with a diploma contract. The reimbursed component will be equal to the original amount of the programme components for which the student deregisters before the deregistration deadline.
Attention: The deregistration must take place before the final dates indicated in the study guide.
The administrative registration fee is not reimbursed upon deregistration.
Deregistration for a credit contract and exam contract does not lead to a reimbursement of the fees.
This proposal is in accordance with the regulations for de-registration as mentioned in Article III.4 of the Codex Higher Education.
The staff members of the student administration office are happy to help you. You can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (before final registration) or email@example.com.
