Higher education studies are not cheap
A student must have sufficient means of subsistence to cover all study, living and healthcare costs, including potential repatriation costs.
Besides the tuition fee and cost for flights and visa, students need in general approximately 9.000 euro per year:
Housing: student room (rent, electricity, water and internet): +/- 450 euro/month
Meals: +/- 10 euro/day or +/- 300 euro/month
- Transportation and travel: bus/tram/metro: buzzy Pazz De Lijn +/- 212 euro/year; bicycle: Velo +/- 49 euro/year.
Please note that it is not possible to pay the study fees in instalments. The study fees are paid in full at the start of the academic semester.
Funding your studies
There are a number of facilities that help you fund your studies:
1. International scholarships
For general information about international scholarships, please check http://www.studyinflanders.be/en/scholarship-programmes/ and https://www.studentsonthemove.be/
2. Scholarships from the Flemish Community
In order to receive a scholarship from the Flemish Community, you must fulfill multiple conditions. If you are temporarily staying in Belgium because of your studies, national conditions will be an obstacle and you might not be eligible to request this scholarship.
If you do not meet the requirements, you will have to fund your studies yourself and (if possible) apply for financial assistance and/or study aid in your home country.

3. Financial aid from the AP University College
Only students from within the European Economic Area are eligible for financial aid from the AP University College, and this if they meet certain conditions.
