I'm aThat's not my experience at all. I have three children all of whom attended local Belgian schools and all of whom were easily and smoothly accepted into UK Universities. All three of them got multiple offers from UK universities at the time of their UCAS applications, and all three ended up doing degrees at Russel Group Universities, where they all met numerous other Belgian students. There are well established equivalencies between UK and Belgian academic qualifications going back over decades.

For example, here are two just at random, but you can pretty much search most UK universities and find the same:

@anon. Yes many do. My sons went to top universities in UK but two universities on my younger son’s UCAS application seemed unable to understand the Belgian certificate. So all I am saying is check that one of your applications is not wasted before applying.
