A programme in Dutch?
UC Leuven-Limburg offers a range of profession-oriented bachelor programmes. Most of our programmes are taught in Dutch. In case you hold a non-Flemish diploma and you wish to apply for a Dutch-speaking programme you must note that fluency in Dutch is required at the moment you apply for a Dutch-spoken degree. Your application package will need to contain this application form. All students who do not hold a Flemish diploma, secondary school or higher education, are required to submit their application to email@example.com and via regular mail.
A fair recognition and admission procedure
UC Leuven-Limburg guarantees you a fair screening of your application. Our guideline for the recognition of your diplomas is based on the Lisbon Recognition Convention. This European-wide convention states that students must be provided with access to higher education with the diplomas they present if they would be given access to higher education in the country where the diplomas were obtained. We make use of the EP-Nuffic database.
Should you wish to appeal the result of your admission procedure or of your request for the recognition of prior learning, you can send your complaint and completed application file to the Chair of the Committee for Appeal, firstname.lastname@example.org with the topic 'Appeal procedure + your name'. The Committee holds regular meetings.
