Is the United Business Intitutes (UBI) in Brussels recognised as a higher education institution by the relevant authorities in Belgium?
Since Belgium is a federal country, there are separate authorities for the recognition of institutions. Recognition by either of these authorities is accepted by all the Belgian authorities.
NVAO is responsible for the Flemish Community and publishes all the recognised institutions and programmes on www.highereducation.be. UBI is not on the register, it is not a recognised institution. The French Community’s ministry is responsible for French-speaking institutions. They publish a list of recognised institutions on their annuaires (http://www.enseignement.be/index.php?page=26036&navi=2911) and on www.studyinbelgium.be. UBI is not listed here as a recognised institution.
To conclude, UBI is not recognised as a higher education institution by the relevant authorities in Belgium.
