In Flanders higher education is organised in universities and university colleges according to the bachelor/master structure.


Professionaly Oriented Bachelor's Degrees

Professionally oriented bachelor's degrees (180 ECTS) are primarily aimed at professional practice and offer students a direct entry point to the labour market. Professional bachelor's students can obtain a master's degree after following a bridge programme. They can also follow advanced bachelor's and master's degree programmes.

Academically Oriented Bachelor's Degrees and Master's Degrees

The main objective of academically oriented bachelor's degrees (180 ECTS) is continuation to a master's degree. These degree programmes not only teach students how to carry a creation through to completion, but also how to situate their practice in the context of the art world.

Master's degrees (60 or 120 ECTS) are always academically oriented and aim to bring students to an advanced level of knowledge and skills, necessary for the autonomous exercise of the arts or sciences, or for the application of scientific or artistic knowledge in the independent practice of a profession.
