Student Visa

If you are a national of a non-European Union country, you may need a visa to enter Belgian territory and study at Vesalius College. For questions regarding visa and related matters, contact the Belgian embassy or Belgian consulate in your country or a neighbouring country. 

The time it takes to obtain a student visa may vary from one to several months depending on a variety of factors including the student’s age and country of origin. Vesalius College recommends that students apply for their student visa as soon as they are accepted into the programme. 

Vesalius will confirm acceptance via the issuance of an official acceptance letter, which is necessary for all student visa applications. It should be noted that student visas for study in Belgium are only issued to applicants demonstrating proof that they are accepted as a full-time student at a Belgian institution. 

It is strongly recommended that students contact the Belgian consulate or embassy in their home country for a complete list of requirements specific to that country.
