Recognition of a Flemish diploma or certificate abroad

If you want to have your Flemish diploma declared equivalent abroad, you can contact the NARIC Centre of that country(opens in new window). They can provide you with information about the procedure you must follow and the documents you will need.

In order to provide information about your Flemish diploma abroad, you can use:

  • the diploma supplement: this is a document issued together with each diploma awarded by Flemish colleges of higher education and universities.
  • a certificate issued by NARIC-Vlaanderen confirming that it is an officially recognized diploma or certificate in Flanders that was awarded by an accredited Flemish education institution.
  • some countries require an authenticated copy of your diploma. This means one signature of a person from the educational sector (rector, professor, headmaster, member of the examination board, etc.) present on the diploma or certificate is declared ‘authentic’ by the ‘Dienst Legalisatie diploma’s (Service for the authentication of diplomas) of the Flemish authorities.
