Institutions

How do I know if an institution is recognised?

Higher education institutions in Flanders, and in Belgium in general, can only be recognised by law or by a governmental decree. New institutions and providers are now recognised after a registration procedure, including the initial accreditation of programmes, and a formal decision by the government.

All recognised higher education institutions are registered in the Higher Education Register. The easiest access to a list of these institutions is to use the browse function of the Higher Education Register.
