Joining a Vlerick programme can be a significant financial investment. But there are many financing options available to help towards your tuition fees – and we’re here to help you explore what types of support you might be eligible for.
This is a brief overview of the different types of support you may be able to access – from government subsidies to scholarships and grants.
Are you self-employed, or do you work for an SME in Brussels? Then, under certain conditions, you are entitled to an Educational Subsidy. You can find all of the conditions on the website of the Brussels-Capital Region. Please note: you must request this subsidy at least 1 month before the start of the educational programme.
If you’re an employee in the private sector, you may be able to apply for Vlaams opleidingsverlof (Flemish Training Leave). This means you can take time off from work to complete your programme – and still get paid. Your employer gets a lump sum to cover costs. Learn more.
These are the programmes that are eligible:
We award scholarships based on academic achievement, personal profile or financial need. You can apply for a general masters scholarship or a partial scholarship for a specific masters programme:
This is for talented professionals who work at not-for-profit organisations and want to join one of our executive management programmes (excl. Finance for Non-financial Managers & Leadership Transition Programme). We award a maximum of one grant per programme. The grant covers your programme fee and you or your organisation cover any additional costs (€50 per programme day for a short-term programme and €1,500 for an intensive programme. No additional costs for online programmes).
To apply, you need to have managerial responsibilities – and you need to show how participating in the programme will help your organisation succeed. If your organisation is registered here, you can apply online. If you’re based outside Belgium, email email@example.com to find out more.
For the following programmes, you may be able to spread the cost of your studies by paying in installments:
For open programmes, please get in touch with the product manager to learn more. For degree programmes, visit the individual programme page for more information.
A loan from your bank could cover your tuition fees. You can get in touch with your bank for more information – or contact your programme manager.
