Application procedure for academic year 2024-2025

Below you find the application procedure for academic admission and scholarships (VLIR-UOS, UGent TopUp Grant, Flanders Knowledge Area Master Mind) for the IMaNema programme starting 1 September.

You possess a non-Belgian bachelor/master diploma:

You have to apply for an admission letter to Ghent University in order to enroll and to apply for a study visa. See all details here.

  1. Apply for academic admission by completing and submitting this online application form. In this phase, you need to upload your diploma(s), academic transcripts and a proof of proficiency in English. Deadline for online application is 1 February 20xx. Before applying, please make sure you have all the required documents at hand that should be uploaded in your online file.
  2. With the same application form, you can also apply for a scholarship (VLIR-UOS, Master Mind). The deadline is also 1 February 20xx. By 1 March 20xx, the Nematology Educational Committee will make a shortlist for all the scholarships. Shortlisted candidates will be informed by e-mail. Note that being on the shortlist does not mean that you will actually get a scholarship. This will depend on: (1) having an official admission letter, (2) the sponsors’ final decision (expected in May/June 20xx).
  3. Note that non-EER students who wish to study under self-sponsorship also need to send in a budget estimation to clarify how they intend to finance their studies. In a later phase we may ask for a proof of sufficient financial means.
  4. Once you submitted your online application form, the Nematology Educational Committee will screen your file for academic and scholarship eligibility. You will be informed if you can continue your application or not. However, this is merely a pre-academic admission, and the International Admissions Desk may still cancel this admission should your university not be an accredited higher education institute or should fraud/irregularities be detected.
  5. Note that most international students also need to send a passport scan and legalise their diploma and academic transcripts.
    These documents should be sent by e-mail to the International Admissions Desk by 1 April 20xx for students who require a visa, 1 June 20xx for students who do not need a visa.
    Only after screening of your passport and legalized diploma and academic transcripts, the final decision of admission is taken and you can be awarded an official admission letter. Your admission letter will be sent to you by e-mail.

You possess a Belgian bachelor/master diploma:

If your bachelor/master diploma meets the admission requirements (any doubts contact, you can immediately enrol through this enrolment procedure (EN) or  enrolment procedure (NL)
