Fees and scholarships

Tuition fees

Fees for the programme starting September 2017 are €14,900. These cover all tuition, text books, a 1-year full access online subscription to Financial Times and travel and accommodation costs for two mandatory trips abroad.

Please note that fees do not include living expenses nor costs related to any optional modules abroad you may take as part of your programme.

Partial scholarships

We offer a number of partial scholarships based on individual merit to cover part of your tuition fee:

  • To apply you must download the scholarship document in your online admissions application and write a 350-500 word motivation.
  • Partial scholarships are granted on a rolling basis, so it’s important to apply early even though there’s no specific deadline.
  • If you received a government grant during your final year of studies at a Belgian university, you’re entitled to a 25% guaranteed scholarship. In this case you don’t need to send in a motivation but must submit proof of having received such a grant.

Loans and other funding opportunities

If you’re offered a place in the programme you’re eligible to apply for a loan with providers Prodigy Finance. This organisation offers alumni-funded loans to international students at the world’s top business schools, including Vlerick Business School. You can finance up to 100% of tuition costs in addition to whatever scholarship award you may be offered.

In parallel you may investigate loan opportunities currently available in your own country and apply for finance from your existing bank. Other funding opportunities may exist in your home country for students wishing to pursue their studies abroad.
