Recognition and validation of previous studies

  • NARIC Flanders is the responsible body for the recognition of the following:
    • diploma of secondary education
    • diploma of higher education
    • diploma or certificate of adult education

The recognition process is different for a diploma or certificate that gives you access to a regulated profession and that you acquired in the European Economic Area or in Switzerland. In that case, NARIC will refer you to the competent service. For example, for the health sector the responsible body is the Agency for Care and Health

NARIC also provides more information on the difference between level or specific recognition

VDAB and AgII can also support the recognition process under certain conditions. More information about diploma recognition can be accessed here.
