Decree of 7 November 2013 defining the landscape of higher education and the academic organization of studies.
The admission requirements must be met prior to enrolment in the University.
Subject to the general requirements laid down by the academic authorities, admission to the specialized Master’s degree programme will be granted to students who fulfil the entry requirements for studies leading to the award of a Master’s (second-cycle) degree and who hold a second-cycle diploma, degree, certificate or other qualification issued within or outside the French Community of Belgium, or whose prior learning or experience has been accredited by the Examination Board as being equivalent to at least 300 credits.
Specific Admission Requirements
• The applicant must hold the degree title of Doctor in Medecine or be a Doctor from a member country of the European Union authorising medical practice in Belgium.
• The applicant must be in possession of a document attesting that, at the end of the selection exams, he was retained as a specialist candidate in Clinical Biology, in a Belgian medical faculty.
• The entrance exam includes the evaluation of the study curriculum, compulsory work experience periods (2 months minimum) in Clinical Biology as well as an exam focussing on the three subject areas : medical biochemistry, microbiology and haematological biology.
The juridical context and practical procedures regarding these selection tests can be obtained from the secretary's office. Degree holders from outside the European Union are only allowed to register on the programme in the context of procuring a university certificate for partially specialised training for the duration of two years (if they are in the process of doing a specialisation in their country of origin) or for an in-depth specialised training course for the duration of one year (if they are already recognised as specialists in their own country).
The Royal Decree of the 30.05.2002, relating to the planning of the medical offer published on the 14.06.2002, applies to those candidates wishing to obtain the title of specialist doctor in Clinical Biology (those candidates are thus counted among the general practitioner candidates or specialists in the context of the numerus clausus).
Applications for admission must be addressed to the academic supervisor. The organisation of the entrance selection tests is arranged in accordance with the calendar and the general examination rules and regulations.
