Paying the tuition fee
EEA-students and students who applied with a valid residence permit for Belgium
When you come to the campus to complete your registration, you will receive an invoice for the amount of the fixed part. You don’t have to pay anything on the spot, you transfer the amount later. The payment of the fixed part of the tuition fee can’t be cancelled after the start of the academic year.
Second invoice *
From the end of August you compile your individual study programme (ISP) and determine how many credits you take up. Once your study programme has been approved, you will receive a second invoice for the variable part. This invoice will be sent to your Thomas More mail address. You don’t pay for course units for which you are exempt.
Non-EEA-students who applied without a valid residence permit for Belgium
After your application has been approved you will pay the tuition fee of one semester in advance, including the fixed part and the variable part of 30 credits.
If you choose a non-standard individual study programme (ISP) you will be charged for the extra credits. If you start in the autumn semester you will be charged for the variable amount of the spring semester as soon as your ISP has been approved.
- Only transfer the tuition fee to the account number stated on the invoice
- Always state the structured communication (e.g. +++000/0000/00000+++)
* Thomas More offers the possibility to pay the second invoice in instalments. This can be done online via a standard distribution plan.

Thomas More offers a blocked account procedure to prove your financial solvency when applying for (the extension of) a student visa (sufficient means of subsistence). You make an advance payment of your monthly living expenses into a blocked account managed by Thomas More. When you arrive in Belgium you open a Belgian bank account in your name into which you receive monthly payments during your studies. At the end of the academic year you are fully reimbursed, apart from €100 administrative fee.
You will receive detailed information on the procedure as soon as your application has been approved.
