Studying without (financial) headaches should be possible for every student at VUB. To make this a reality, students can appeal to a range of support facilities. All your questions will be treated confidentially and your specific situation will be taken into account. If necessary we try to find a feasible solution.
Students can contact the Social Service for Students for:
• Financial support for study expenses
In general, only Belgian students can apply for a grant of the Flemish community or financial support from the Social Services for Students. However, some EEA-students can be entitled if they live in Belgium for at least five years or if they (or their parents) worked in Belgium at least one year. Non-EEA-students can be entitled if they have a permanent residence in Belgium.
Besides these nationality requirements, there are other conditions that apply for financial support from the Social Services for Students.
• Special procedure VUB housing department
Students can be given priority to receive a VUB dorm room through a special procedure.
