Studying in Belgium will open the doors to many opportunities for you. You can enroll regularly or as part of a university foreign exchange system. Belgium offers a variety of educational institutions. This includes Universities, Faculties, and the National Institutes of Art and Architecture. An additional advantage of this variety is of high quality and at a reasonable price.

Requirements to study in Belgium

In fact, Belgium receives more than 50,000 people a year who travel to the country in search of professional and study opportunities. To keep this system intact, every student over the age of 21 must present a certificate that they do not have a criminal record.

Some universities require documentation of your entrance exam (an example would be the French exam for medical students in the Frankfurt region).

The Master Mind Scholarships in Flanders, Belgium are offered by the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training, which awards scholarships for master’s programs in Flanders and Brussels, Belgium, to outstanding students from around the world.

These countries are priority countries for the Flemish government. If a scholarship is not accepted, it is awarded to the highest-ranked candidate by the selection committee.

Students must not combine this scholarship with another Flemish government scholarship or an Erasmus Mundus scholarship.

At the end of the mobility, all students are expected to submit an essay and complete a short questionnaire about their mobility.

A maximum of 20 applications can be submitted per Flemish higher education institution.
