It is a course of study of at least 60 credits leading to a specific professional qualification. Specialised Masters offer highly specialised training in a field. Students can thus complete the training they have already acquired in a second university cycle.


You have to check if the Specialised Master’s degree you would like to register for is organised as a joint degree with partner institutions. The registration must always take place in the reference institutions.

In the event that the reference institution is not the University of Liège, please contact the reference one to find out about the registration instructions.

General access conditions to the Specialised Masters

Access to specialised Masters studies is regulated by article 112 of the decree of 7 November 2013 defining the landscape of higher learning and the academic organisation of studies, as well as the implementation decrees issued in application of this decree.

Subject to the general conditions set by the academic authorities, students who have access to specialised Masters studies meet the access conditions set out in article 111 and have a second-cycle title, diploma, grade or degree, be it from the French Community or not, or who have acquired skills recognised by the jury for at least 300 credits.

In addition, the only ones to have access to Specialised Masters in Medicine are students with a certificate of admission to the specialised studies in question, issued by a special inter-university jury at the end of a selection examination. Indeed, only a predetermined number of new doctors may access each year the practice of general medicine or specialised medicine under conditions enabling their patients to obtain reimbursement of their received care.

For further information, consult the site of the Faculty of Medicine.


Universities in the French Community of Belgium may refuse the registration application of a non-fundable student on the basis of his or her academic record (cf. art. 5 of the decree of 11 April 2014).

This measure applies in particular to students who already have a certain number of registrations in the same course of study (without having obtained a degree).

In addition, students who enrol in a course of study after failing twice in a competitive examination or any test enabling them to undertake or continue higher education in the same course of study are not eligible for funding.
