It is important that you have sufficient financial resources, because your host university, university college or any other Flemish or Belgian organisation will be unable to help you once you have arrived.

Currency

Euro notes and coins became legal tender in the eurozone countries on 1 January 2002. Official euro currency converter:http://www.euro.ecb.int/.

Personal expenses

Average personal expenses are about 850 euros per month. This includes accommodation, meals, study materials and travelling in Flanders. Some institutions have student restaurants where they offer meals at democratic prices.

Housing

Many universities and university colleges have rooms available for students or provide lists of local rooms for rent. It is advisable to contact your host institution for information. Some institutions offer accommodation at about 200 euros per month. Renting a studio flat is more expensive, although you might find one for 400 euros per month. Financing your education by taking student jobs is possible, but fairly difficult.

Insurance

You need adequate insurance before registering at all institutions (health, accident, third-party liability insurance). For more information contact your host institution.
