Can I enroll in the Master SUBE when I'm still enrolled in my bachelor's programme?

International students can only enroll when they have completed their bachelor programme (except students from the Netherlands and Luxemburg).

If you are a currently enrolled in a bachelor in de bio-ingenieurswetenschappen (Flemish), then you can already enroll in the Master’s programme. Please take a close look at the sequentiality of the master’s courses when combining the two programmes. 

Where can I find a model timetable?

You can find a model time table here.

Note: the exact time table in the second year will depend on your choice of electives.

How can I travel between the three universities?

Since we value sustainability in this master’s programme, we recommend travelling between the campuses via public transport as much as possible. You can check which formula suits you best via the website of the NMBS (Belgian train company). Are you younger than 26? Then the Student Multi pass (formerly known as Campus card) is probably the most advantageous. To apply for this pass, you need proof of registration at all three institutions: main registration at the University of Antwerp and a guest registration at Ghent University and KU Leuven. On the main registration, it should be stated that this master’s programme is jointly organized by these three universities.
