Recognition of foreign degrees

The added value of a master’s degree is known. If you have, furthermore, studied in a foreign language as well as in an international environment, then this can only provide an additional value for the development of your career. Studying abroad strengthens your future possibilities in business and aids your personal development.
Companies and organizations experience the need for employees eager to cross borders both physically and mentally. Obtaining a master’s degree in a foreign university will certainly help and is highly valued in the business world. Many alumni who have studied abroad, occupy important functions in different companies today.

It is important to know that, if you want to work for a government agency in Belgium, your foreign degree will be subject to a number of administrative conditions. One of those conditions is that your foreign diploma becomes recognized as equivalent to a national diploma. NARIC Vlaanderen is the organization that investigates this recognition in Flanders, for which you have to submit an individual application. More information on the academic recognition of equivalence of foreign degrees can be found via NARIC Vlaanderen
