Before applying, it is of course essential to check out our Admission Requirements as well as Scholarship Opportunities.

Tuition Fee

The tuition fee is €5,400 for academic year 2018/2019 (including e.g. a field trip to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg)

IES scholarship

In addition to the affordable tuition, the Programme itself offers a limited number of scholarships:

  • The PILC Alumni generously wants to give back to the Programme. We have set up for this purpose the PILC Alumni Scholarship Fund . The applications for this fund follow the same procedure as the waivers noted below.
  • IES Scholarships take the form of partial tuition waivers. The waivers are awarded on the basis of a separate request, submitted as a part of the application for the Programme. The waivers are awarded upon an assessment of merit and demonstrable need.

University scholarship

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel yearly awards a number of scholarships for advanced studies at Master or Advanced Master level. The candidates are also advised to carefully explore the possibilities of obtaining financial assistance in their home countries. For more information, please see the Vrije Universiteit Brussel’s webpage ‘Financing your studies’.
