A fair recognition and admission process

UCLL guarantees a fair screening of your application.

Screening process
  • Our guidelines for the recognition of your credentials is governed by the Lisbon Recognition Convention if the country where the degree/diploma/certificate was issued, has ratified the Convention. 
  • Students must hold a diploma/degree/certificate that  provides access  to higher education in the country where it was issued, similar to  the level applied for  at UCLL.

In addition, we mainly use  UK ENIC and NUFFIC databases to assess candidates' diplomas/degrees.


Should you wish to appeal the result of your admission procedure or of your request for the recognition of prior learning:

  • send your complaint and completed application file to the Committee for Appeals at interne.beroepscommissie@ucll.be
  • mention 'Appeal procedure + your name' in the subject line

The Committee meets on a regular basis.
