Prospective students for the Music, Drama, Audio-Visual, and Visual Arts programmes are required to take an entrance test. You can only enroll after passing these. For the other programmes we advise you to check under the ‘admission requirements’ heading.

Preliminary registration

If you wish to enroll in a programme you must register in advance. Before presenting yourself at the student office you must have completed the online registration form correctly. This preliminary registration makes the actual enrolment procedure go a lot smoother. The registration form is available every year by the end of November.

> Online registration form

Note: Candidates who have already registered for an entrance test and wish to enroll definitively after passing the test are no longer required to complete the preliminary registration and can skip this step. If you were a student at any of University College Ghent’s faculties in the past years you are also not required to pre-register.


To finalize your enrolment, you must go to the student office in person. You can do this starting from 2 July till 13 July - except for 11 July when the student office will be closed - and then starting again from 13 August.

Make sure to bring these documents:

  • a valid Belgian identity card or residence permit
  • the original of your secondary school diploma
  • a proof of granted scholarship for the past academic or school year, if you apply for a scholarship and wish to pay the scholarship student tuition fee rate
  • documents concerning past higher education (transcript of records, diploma …), as the case may be


Upon enrolment at the student office you will receive your student card and the documents and information you need to get started in the new academic year. Enrolment certificates for public transportation and the like will be e-mailed to you, as will the invoices for the tuition and studio fees.
