Are you new in Belgium?
Did you already obtain a diploma in another country than Belgium?
Would you like to have it validated in Belgium?
Or have you acquired certain competences through experience?
Your guidance counsellor (trajectbegeleider) guides you through the diploma equivalence procedure and refers you to a specialist.
What is diploma equivalence (diplomagelijkschakeling)?
Recognition of diploma equivalence allows you to have your diploma and qualifications from your country of origin validated in Belgium. A higher diploma that is recognised in Belgium gives you more possibilities to continue studying or to find a suitable job.
Beware! The procedure may be complicated.
Here you can find out how you can have your diploma validated.
