Before you can register at UMONS, you will need to submit an application via the Online Admissions Application Form. This form, once printed off, signed and dated, will be examined by the Admissions Unit and the relevant faculties. You must also provide a financial support plan.

In the event of a favourable decision, you will receive an acceptance letter asking you to pay a portion of your tuition fees.

Once the fees have been received, you will receive the documents necessary for your visa application. If you do not require a visa, payment of the increased tuition fees will be due, in accordance with the provisions set out in the study regulations (it is possible to pay by debit or credit card). For assimilated students, proof of assimilation must be provided on the day of registration. (See the Assimilation Criteria).

In the event that your application is rejected, you will be informed by e-mail.  Rejected applications will not be reviewed. It is not possible to modify or complete rejected applications. It is possible, however, for you to submit a new application, providing the application deadline has not passed.

This possibility of submitting a new application does not apply to those whose applications were refused because the amount covered in the Financial Support Plan was too low. In this case, any new applications will not be considered.

Note: According to the education system in your country of origin, your years of study may be partially recognised by the Board, who may then decide to offer you a programme which may differ from that chosen in your original application.
