Admission Process

UBI offers two intakes for the BSc programmes: one in September (autumn) and one in February (spring).

Applicants are invited to apply directly online. Along with an application form, applicants need to submit a:

  • Secondary school/high school diploma and breakdown of individual subjects and grades (in English or French)
  • Scan of their passport
  • Portrait photo
  • Proof of command of the English language, usually IELTS (6.0) or TOEFL iBT (72) results
  • Personal statement: a 300-word critical analysis on the programme’s potential contribution to the applicant’s personal and professional development.

Note: All students enrolled in UBI programmes are expected to bring their personal laptops for all academic activities.

  • The admissions team assesses each application package and makes recommendations based on the academic requirements and on the candidate’s overall suitability for the programme.

  • Candidates recommended by the admissions team are invited for a 30-minute interview with the Programme Director. Interviews for candidates are usually conducted online via Zoom.

• Successful candidates receive a confirmation email within 30 days of the personal interview offering admission to the programme.
• UBI welcomes students from a wide range of backgrounds to maintain a diverse student body and promote a stimulating learning environment.

Applicants are not discriminated against on the grounds of political views, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability or age.

Rates for enrolment in Academic Year 2023-2024:

  • Students are expected to complete the Bachelors programme in 3 years.
  • UBI Brussels Bachelors tuition fee: EUR 7,950 per academic year for EEA citizens and EUR 11,340 per academic year for non-EEA citizens.
  • UBI Luxembourg Bachelors tuition fee: EUR 7,950 per academic year for EEA citizens (Luxembourg citizens entitled to receive a scholarship from the Luxembourgish government (AideFi) are not eligible for the EEA scholarship) and EUR 11,340 per academic year for non-EEA citizens.
  • Note to EEA citizens: to retain the rate of EUR 7,950 from year 2 onwards, students need to maintain an overall average of 14/20 throughout the academic year. Failure to achieve this average will result in the full rate of EUR 11,340 being applied for the subsequent academic year
  • UBI offers a wide range of scholarships and tuition support programmes for prospective and currently enrolled students. For details, please see “Scholarships & Tuition Support Programmes”.
  • Tuition fees do not include personal equipment (e.g.: computers), textbooks, printing services, accommodation, flight and visa fees for international study trips, and/or similar academic expenses.
  • For further financial information, e.g.: on invoicing and payments, please see “UBI’s Financial Terms & Conditions for Students”.
  • Upon successful admission into the programme, students requiring a visa to study at UBI must make a first tuition fee payment to continue the enrolment process. UBI must receive the payment in full before providing any official documents (official registration letter; proof of subsistence via blocked account), that are required in the visa application process. The payment covers the tuition fees for the first semester plus an administrative fee of EUR 350. The tuition fees are fully refundable in case of visa rejection or a deferral/withdrawal before the start of the programme. The administrative fee is non-refundable.
  • Visa students who want to secure a place in the programme first, and continue the enrolment process later, have the option to make a down payment of EUR 1.000, and pay the remaining fees later, but before the start of the programme. The down payment is non-refundable in case the student decides not to study at UBI Business School, except for circumstances such as a medical and/or other legitimate reasons (e.g.: visa rejection) resulting in the student not being able to pursue his/her studies.
  • It is recommended to apply for a student visa type D with multiple entries, valid for the entire duration of the programme, immediately after receiving UBI’s official registration letter.
  • Obtaining a study visa involves a challenging and time-consuming process. It is therefore important for applicants to dedicate plenty of time to gather all the necessary evidence and prepare themselves well ahead of the start of the programme.
  • For further financial information about the official visa process, visit the official Belgian Immigration Office page.
  • Visa students are required to provide proof of means of subsistence as part of the visa application process. These funds are aimed at proving that students have the minimum amount required to cover living costs, studies, and repatriation costs.
  • For the 2023-2024 academic year in Belgium, the minimum required fund is EUR 803 X 12 months = EUR 9,636.
    • i.e. International applicants need to secure around EUR 15,000 (means of subsistence + tuition fee + administration fee) prior to applying for a visa.
  • Important note: it is highly recommended that this fund be safely secured in a blocked account, which UBI can help applicants set up.
  • For UBI’s regulation on subsistence funds, please see “UBI Proof of subsistence regulation”.
  • For any additional information concerning subsistence funds, please refer to the official Immigration Office Website.

Our bachelor's programmes are offered in two locations: Brussels and Luxembourg

UBI Business School’s suite of bachelor’s programmes are offered across both our Brussels and Luxembourg** campus, two important business centres in the heart of Europe.

These programmes aim to develop students’ international business knowledge as well as their management and leadership skills. Students get ready to face the challenges of an increasingly globalised environment within a digitalised economy and society while demonstrating good citizenship both on a personal and corporate level.

Our bachelor’s graduates are high-quality professionals who demonstrate a deep understanding of today’s companies’ needs as well as a strong awareness of the technological phenomena and trends in their corporate environment. They strive to identify, evaluate and implement business and management issues beyond the remit of their programme.

**Luxembourg students who choose to join the BSc (Hons) Business and BSc (Hons) Business (Management of AI & Machine Learning) will follow their classes online, in hybrid format with Brussels, for the final year of specialisation.
