As a student at the Conservatoire, you can have access to social aid and/or benefits to help finance your studies.
The Conservatoire can award financial aid (aides sociales). This aid, which comes from the Conservatoire's own funds, is distributed by the school's social service, to help cover part of the living costs of the student who applies for this aid. Students will be selected for this aid by the social service on the basis of their file, according to their personal means, their parents' income, and the distance between their place of study and family home.
The social service is open to all students of the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles. The social assistant, Mathieu RICHARD, can be found in the Conservatoire on Tuesdays (from 10:00 to 19:00), thursdays (from 9:00 to 17:00) and every other friday ( from 9:30 to 16:30) in office 006 at the Chêne site.
The "allocation d'études" is a type of financial aid offered by the Federation Wallonia-Brussels to students who have financial need, to help cover the costs of higher education. This aid is not awarded automatically but has to be applied for by the student, each academic year, by submitting an application form.*
Once the file has been assessed, the student will receive a letter confirming the decision of the administration (whether positive or negative) at some point during the academic year.
* Applications made electronically will be treated before those made through the paper form.
The Wernaers scholarship can be awarded to any deserving student who finds themselves in a difficult socio-economic position. To qualify for this, the student has to be registered as a regular student of music, in a School of Arts, and has to have received at least 45 credits (ECTS) of their course in the Federation Wallonia-Brussels, without having already acquired a masters degree (120 ECTS credits).
