Payment Tuition Fee

How to pay the tuition fee?

  • by bank - or credit card upon enrolment
  • by invoice (handed or mailed to the student once the enrolment is completed) - bank details can be found on money and banking
  • the tuition fee is paid by the department (internal invoice): the departments makes an internal order in SAP. You bring the internal order when enrolling or you e-mail the internal order from your UGent-e-mail address to  (information for the department: article number 3000033, department code CA10)
  • You can consult your account balance in Oasis.
  • attention: it is not possible to issue an invoice addressed to an external third party. You are required to pay the tuition fee and arrange any reimbursement options with the external third party.

Adjustment or reimbursement

  • The vast majority of international students follow their programme on a full-time basis. Therefore you pay the correct fee at the time of enrolment.
  • Should there be a change in the uptake of credits, the Registrar's Office will notify you of the adjustments. You will either need to make a further payment or will be reimbursed.
  • Read up on the rules concerning reimbursement in case of changing contract terms or stopping your studies.


Invoices are sent to the student by e-mail. 

There are two steps in the billing method of the credits. Upon enrolment, you receive an initial invoice. After approval of your curriculum you will receive your final invoice.

The initial invoice is determined on the basis of an estimation of the number of credits that will be taken up and the type of enrolment. 

You can also calculate the tuition fee and pay the correct amount immediately.

When you enrol for a credit contract, your initial invoice will be the fixed amount. After the curriculum has been approved, you will receive a final invoice depending on the actual credit points taken up.

You are obliged to pay the invoice as soon as you are enrolled, even if you terminate your contract later.

Tuition fee and multiple enrolments

If you are enrolled with a diplomacontract or a creditcontract for courses from a Bachelor-, Linking- , Prepatory, Master-after-bachelor or Specific Teacher Programme; all study points (with a higher tuition fee or not) will be calculated together which means you only have to pay the fixed amount once.

If you are enrolled with a diplomacontract or creditcontract for a Master-after-master, Postgraduate or Permanent Training Programme, all study points will be calculated separately which means you will have to pay each time the fixed amount.

Exam contracts are charged separately in any case.

Erasmus Mundus

Payment of the tuition fee is settled with the consortium. Upon enrolment you do not receive an invoice.
