|Advanced Master’s programme (for students from countries outside the European Union)||Tweeter|
If you are a citizen of a country outside the European Union and you want to register for a advanced Master's programme at the ULg.
We invite you to submit a file, and we will inform you about the exact conditions under which you may be admitted to study.
|!!! Deadline for receipt of applications to the admissions department : April 30, 2013 !!!|
Before being allowed to register at the ULg, you must submit an admissions file containing all required elements, and accompanied by all official documents required by the Admissions Office no later than April 30 for admission at the start of a new academic year. The file will be submitted to a jury, which will make a decision; if the decision is favorable, you will receive an authorization to register.
Complete the application form online.
You will be asked to show how you propose to pay for your studies and expenses while studying at the University of Liège (scholarship grant or other source of funds), and with regard to the cost of living in Belgium.
Finally, a candidate for admission whose prior language of instruction was not French must show official proof of his or her mastery of the French language. In terms of the European reference framework, proficiency at a "B2" level is required. This can be attested by your successfully passing a standardised test (DALF, DELF, TEF or TCF).
In order to receive authorization to register in an advanced Master's, you must meet the following requirements :
1) You must hold a 2nd cycle higher education diploma earned after 5 years of study for a total of 300 credits (including two mentions of 12/20, one of which must have been earned during the year of the diploma). You must not have failed more than one time during the prior years of your higher education studies abroad. You must not have already obtained a DES, DEA, advanced Master or Doctorate prior to this registration in schools operated by the French-speaking Community of Belgium.
2) You must be successful in the last final result in the Belgian education or abroad (if you are studying this year, you have to pass the current year).
3) The area request must be directly related to the prior studies.
4) Your academic file must earn the favorable opinion of the jury. The jury's decision is final regarding the level at which you may be admitted.
5) If none of your previously earned diplomas was obtained in a school where the language of instruction was French, you must attach to your file official proof of your proficiency in French. In terms of the European reference framework, proficiency at a "B2" level is required. This can be attested by your successfully passing a standardised test (DALF, DELF, TEF or TCF). The "B2" level will not be asked for some advanced masters which are taught in English.
6) You must provide a financial plan (official proof of financial resources required), demonstrating sufficient financial resources to pay your expenses while studying.
7) Additional conditions for the Faculty of Law: you must have obtained 1 mention (14/20) during one of your last two years of studies.
For advanced Master's programmes in medicine, dental sciences, or pharmacy, holders of diplomas from outside the European Union cannot complete an entire course of studies leading into a specialization; regulations in the area of public health do not allow students in this case to pursue studies for more than 2 or 3 years in Belgium (dispensation 49 ter). They may be admitted, to the extent that slots are available, and with the permission of the Chief of the clinical department involved, to a programme leading to a Certificate of Partial Specialized Training.
Some advanced Master's programmes can receive scholarship assistance via the University Cooperation for Development agency.

No admission decision will be rendered in cases of incomplete application files, missed deadlines, or submission of documents that do not meet standardised academic criteria as required.
The University of Liège reserves the right to demand presentation of original diplomas and grade reports as part of the framework of the registration process.
School authorities will verify the authenticity of declarations and documents submitted. If there is any doubt, additional information and/or documentation may be required. Any submission of counterfeited documents will be reported to all institutions concerned, and will entail automatic cancellation of registration.
The University of Liège's policy is to refuse admission to students who received failing grades in their last period of higher education study (if you are still studying, you must succed the current year).
Only students who have paid all fees and outstanding bills can register.
