Tuition & Scholarships

Tuition Fee

The tuition fee (including the examination fee) for the academic year 2015-2016 has been set at 5350 EUR. The fee includes the costs for photocopies, casebooks and a study trip.

Foreign students must make their own arrangements to be covered by health insurance, valid during their stay in Belgium.


The Programme will not be able to extend any financial support, with the exception of the below noted tuition waiver, to a student, arriving at the Programme without having secured the minimum amount for living expenses necessary for the full period of the academic year. However, a number of internal and external scholarships might be available.

IES scholarship
The programme itself offers a number of scholarships that take the form of a reduced tuition fee. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit and demonstrable need. Students have to apply for the tuition waiver when submitting their application for the programme.
