STEP 1: Letter of admission or letter of acceptance

The first requirement for obtaining a student visa is:


1)  for degree students:

  •    a letter of admission from UC Leuven-Limburg
  •  will be issued by our Admissions Office

2)  For  exchange students:

  •  a letter of acceptance from UC Leuven-Limburg
  • will be issued by our International Mobility Coordinators in charge of exchange programmes

STEP 2: ‘blocked account’ procedure

Only necessary for students outside the European Economic Area

During the application process for a student visa, you will need to prove your financial solvency. UC Leuven-Limburg is able to assist you with a 'proof of solvency'.  We offer a so-called  "blocked account "procedure.   

As soon as you have been admitted, we will provide further details  about  this procedure

STEP 3: Apply for a student visa

With the proof of solvency at the ready, you can apply for a student visa (courtesy of KULeuven, our partner university) for Belgium.
