1. How can I be sure that my bachelor's degree falls under the professional bachelors (PBA) category?

A professional bachelor provides a direct ticket to a specific profession. Such degrees were formerly dispensed following ‘higher education of the short type’, unlike an academic bachelor's degree (ABA), which simply provides access to an academic master's and not to a profession. The PBA programme consists of minimum 180 credits.

If you are in doubt about what kind of degree you hold, please check this with your institution of learning. Otherwise, check the website mesetudes.be or onderwijskiezer.be.
