In the structure decree of April 4, 2003 an important step to repositioning of two-cycle higher education of the colleges of higher education is put. In this decree it is determined that in the future the training of two-cycle education within the framework of the associations between colleges and universities is academie education. The accreditation of this training, which will take place in 2012-2013, will depend on the degree in which this education is "academised". On the basis of Flemish research in this article it is demonstrated that the period which the colleges and the universities have for the implementation of the academisation is much too short and that the budget provided by the government to implement this process is too limited. The structure and the culture of colleges of higher education and universities are of that nature that they need more time and resources than they get now by the decree.
