Required for ALL foreign students
All foreign students that reside in Belgium during their studies will need a valid Belgian residence card for the duration of the academic year.
Once you are in Antwerp, you will have to register officially for the Belgian government. Please contact the student administration office (firstname.lastname@example.org +32 3 213 71 00) as soon as possible so that an appointment can be made at the International Student Office in Antwerp for you.
In the PDF document of the International Student Office you can find all the details about the documents and information you need to provide.
If you commute from your country every day and don't have a residence in Belgium, a statement saying you will commute every day is sufficient.
Required for non-EU students only
Before the entrance exam: Short term visa
You apply for the bachelor artistic entrance examination or you apply for the master application procedure. You will receive a confirmation form via e-mail. You take this confirmation form to the Belgian Embassy in your country to apply for your short term visa (tourist visa).
After the entrance exam: Long term visa
The student administration can deliver on demand an official letter which confirms that you have passed the artistic entrance examination. You can take this official letter, to the Belgian Embassy in your country to apply for your long term student Visa.
