Depends on what you wanna study in Belgium....I guess the admission for 2012/2013 is closed now for most of the Government Universities.
Thanks

Have u got d admission? If not, concentrate on applying for admission first...thats from arnd september to january. When u've got d admission letter by April/May, u rush and apply 4d visa...it takes time 4 nigerians living in Nigeria....say 3months, sumtimes less. Finance is a major issue so choose d right course dat may attract scholarships....u may b lucky i.e if u are not a silver-spoon person.

@tobiloba,
please whats the tuition fee like or is it free?
Re: How Easy Is It To Get Belgium Visa For Education by tobiloba82: 11:18am On Sep 24, 2012
There are no tuition free schools in belgium. you can only earn scholarship by luck for master degree. However, the have cheap and affordale master degree courses. i only appreciate their position on bank account statement which is calculate as 519 euros per monthe for a year. the money must reflect that it has been their exactly or over a year. To cut it short, N1.5m. then you are good to go. Some of their masters courses are not more that 3000 euros.

Thanks for your contributions on the thread, they are indeed informational. Meanwhile, I'd like to find out some important stuffs from you, which are;

What is it like studying in Belgium?
Do you stayed in school student-managed accommodation/off campus apartment?
What's the monthly cost of living like over there (i.e feeding,rented accommodation,transport & utility bills?
Do you have any idea of the tuition fees for UG programmes (esp Computer Sci/Information Technology)?
What's the UG & Msc course duration?
Are students allowed to work there & What's the chances of getting PT jobs as international students?
Pay figures if appropriate/applicable?

I'll appreciate your swift response to the above questions, thank you in anticipation.
Re: How Easy Is It To Get Belgium Visa For Education by tobiloba82: 8:40pm On Sep 25, 2012
The money could be in ur a/c or sponsor a/c. your sponsor will have to sign a sponsor form. you will be given the form at their consulate in lekki.
There are jobs for international students in Belgium. Though you will be given 50 days to work in a year without paying social contribution(taxes) if you work more than 50 days in year,you will have to start paying social contributions to the govt.
once you have a good bank account and you can defend the sponsor relationship between both of you, you are good to go. i will give you computer/it related courses' tuition fees later.

And what's the figure like plus social tax inclusive? And how readily available are the jobs upon arrival or does it take few months before one can be allowed to work after the 50days allowed is being exceeded? I was thinking you were also schooling there at the moment, or where are you?

I will be looking forward to your post about the Schools offering Computer/IT related courses and their tuition fee structures, thanks.

Part time jobs are easier to find in belgium, in main centres such as liege, leuven, brussels and antwerp , jobs which require no language and most of the belgians actually speak english fluently and you will have a lot of options when you actually land there and go around and start looking for jobs. when it comes to pay ...they pay you around 7 euros min. for unskilled jobs in restaurants it can go upto 18 - 20 euros per hour.

@tobiloba82, a number of questions baffle me on
how to legalise my documents @Belgium embassy
here in Nigeria. These issues are itemised below
please help address the issues to the best of your
knowledge
I was able to copy the information below from the
VHS website
- - - - - - - - - - - -
"The embassy of Belgium is only allowed to legalize
original documents or 'Certified copies'
Original documents or 'Certified copies'
A 'Certified copy' must bear:
- The mention 'Certified copy'
- The signature and the seal from the institute that
originally issued the document.
"
- - - - - - - - - - - -
1.
My question on the above information is:
How do I go about getting "Certified copy" of my
documents although I have the originals of these
documents?
Do I make clear and clean photocopies of these my
documents and have the signature and the seal from
the institute that originally issued the document on
it. Will this be solution to the issues raised on their
site as I paste it above
2.
From VHS websites
- - - - - - - - - - - -
The Belgian embassy in Nigeria only legalises the
signature of the authorities at the Nigerian Ministry
of Foreign affairs in Abuja.
Please make sure that before coming to the embassy
the document is signed by this authority.
- - - - - - - - - - - -
My question on the above information is:
Do I have to travel to Nigerian Ministry of Foreign
affairs in Abuja to have these documents signed
again by the said Ministry?
3.
From VHS websites
- - - - - - - - - - - -
.......which he/she submits to the legalisation
department of the embassy, together with the
documents to be legalised. These documents must
be originals.
Belgian officials may refuse documents that are older
than 6 months.
- - - - - - - - - - - -
My question on the above information is: Do I have to
Submit my ORIGINAL documents along with the
documents also what did they mean by saying "
Belgian officials may refuse documents that are older
than 6 months."
4.
Lastly, how long does it take by the embassy to
legalised documents?

I will appreciate if you can direct the answer to these questions into my mailbox because am not to frequent online.
