Fees & Financial Support

Tuition Fee

As a student at the IOA, you pay a tuition fee for the coming academic year. The tuition fee for ’20-’21 is €1750.

We ask that you pay the tuition fee either in two parts (Payment 1 & Payment 2), or all at once.

When you cancel the registration or when you interrupt or end your studies at the IOA early, for any other than urgent medical reasons, none of the tuition fee will be reimbursed.

Financial Support for Students

In need of financial assistance?
Students can request financial support from the IOA in several ways.

1.     IOA Scholarship

All students at the IOA are allowed to apply for an IOA Scholarship before the start of a new academic year. IOA scholarships cover the school’s tuition fee either partly or completely. The amount of the awarded scholarship depends on the student’s financial and social situation. Students are asked to submit a motivated application form and a proof of financial/social situation.

To qualify for the IOA Scholarship, you must:

  • Have completed the full tuition payment for the academic year;
  • Have submitted a full application for the IOA Scholarship upon the stated deadline.

If you are awarded a scholarship, the given amount will be paid in instalments (January, March, June).

Should you break the terms of the regulation, then the total amount of the Scholarship grant must be repaid to the IOA.

2.     IOA Student Provision (Stupro)

The IOA Student Provision grant can be applied for by exceptional students, who distinguish themselves at their audition (grades by the professional jury). Students can also apply for an IOA Student Provision grant for the second year of their studies, if they have proven their exceptional qualities as marked in their final first year grade. Students who qualify to apply will be personally notified.

The IOA Stupro is a grant (partly) covering living costs. The amount of the grant is determined following registration and takes into account several parameters (start-up costs, study costs, rent, …). The maximum amount cannot exceed the sum of 3.900€/year.

To qualify for the IOA Scholarship, you must:

  • Have completed the full tuition payment for the academic year;
  • Have submitted a full application for the IOA Stupro upon the stated deadline.

The IOA Student Provision Grant specifically aims to provide financial assistance to students in financial need. You must also seek to contribute to your own financial situation – as far as possible – through student employment.

If you are granted a Stupro, the given amount will be paid in instalments.

Should you decide to terminate your education before the end of the academic year, part of the student provision may be withheld by the IOA. Should you break the terms of the regulation, then the total amount of the Stupro grant must be repaid to the IOA.

3.     Emergency Funding

In case of unforeseen financial emergencies, students may contact student coordinator Jo Lambelin (jokelambelin@ioacademy.be) regarding an exceptional application for emergency funding with the social fund.
