Student Visa Information
The ULB will shortly have a procedure in place to assist students in obtaining their student visas through the deposit of living expenses in a blocked account in Belgium in advance of the visa application. Students who wish to avail themselves of this procedure are encouraged to apply for admission by March 1. This will allow for sufficient time to complete the procedure and thereby maximize chances of obtaining the student visa in time for enrollment.
