2) For exchange students:
- a letter of acceptance from UC Leuven-Limburg

STEP 2: ‘blocked account proposal'
Only applicable to students who require a study visa to come and study in belgium
During the application process for a student visa, you will have to prove your financial capability to take care of your living expenses for each study year in Belgium.
UC Leuven-Limburg is able to assist you by offering a so-called "blocked account proposal" (BAP).
By transferring a certain amount (see rates below) into the UCLL bank account , we will provide you with a 'Letter of Financial Guarantee' . Such letter is well known at Belgian embassies worldwide. By submitting this letter you will not have to prove your financial capability in any other way (e.g. by soliciting the help of a sponsor or guarantor).
The BAP includes tuition fee, 700 euro monthly instalment (x number of months), start-up money.
The amount should preferably be transferred before the end of May preceding the academic year starting in September.
Important: the BAP is a proposal and by no means an obligation !
