How to Apply

A student visa is not required to attend our Summer Programme. In most cases, a tourist visa is sufficient for attendance. However, students must have a valid identity card or passport.

All students who wish to participate in the Summer Programme must submit a Summer Programme Application Form. Students who want to do an internship during the summer must complete TWO Application Forms (one for the Summer Programme and one for the Internship).  The deadline for the Summer Programme Application is 21 May 2018, and the Internship Application deadline is 30 March. Students who are unable to meet the application deadline should contact Mrs. Clara Cotroneo (Study Abroad Students) or Ms. Vanessa Goffard (External students)

Applications for admission consist of:

  • A completed Summer programme application form
  • Official academic credentials and transcripts (showing courses and grades) from your most recently attended secondary school or university, including public examination results (note: if the credentials and transcripts are not in English, Dutch, French or German, we require a certified translation by a sworn translator and accompanied by the document in the original language)

Applicants must ask the agency to send score reports directly to Vesalius College. For the TOEFL, use the College code 3574.

Vesalius College will provisionally reserve a place for new students in the courses indicated on their application form. If new students do not confirm their place(s) by registering during the first week of classes, their registration will automatically be cancelled.
