I have a question about - The admission criteria

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.

Yes, you can apply if you have indeed finished your studies with success and are just waiting for the official diploma. In that case, we accept a proof of successful completion delivered by the institution or establishment of learning.

In order to apply, you must

  • Hold Belgian nationality,
  • Or be a citizen of a State of the European Union or of the Swiss Confederation.

Candidates whose nationality is not listed above are automatically excluded.

Your application will not be taken into consideration. Indeed, you may not be 31 on the last day of publication of job openings.

For instance, if job openings are published from 27 May to 5 June and your 31st anniversary is on 30 May, you cannot apply.
If, however, your 31st anniversary is on 6 June, i.e. after the publication period, you can apply for a last time.

No, only professional bachelor’s and academic master’s degrees are accepted.
More about a postgraduate and ‘mastère’ below.

  • The post graduate degree:
    a post graduate may follow a master’s or an academic bachelor’s degree. It aims at continuous professional training, broadening and deepening acquired competences.
  • ‘mastère’: 
    this is offered by institutions of higher learning. This label offers students access to master’s degrees. It is therefore not an academic master’s degree.
