Overview of levels and accepted proofs of proficiency

Basic Diploma

Admission is granted on the basis of a diploma, irrelevant of nationality.

Most qualifications obtained abroad do not grant direct admission. This means that the diploma is not automatically recognised as equivalent to a Flemish diploma and that admission can be granted after an individual application procedure.

  • Please check the diploma requirement applicable to you, by selecting the type of programme you want to apply for:

Bachelor programme
Master programme (initial and advanced)
SLO: specific teacher training
Predoctoral training, doctoral training, doctorate (Ph.D)
Permanent training
