    Let me get back to you once I have an answer from the French ministry of youth, sports and education please.
    Is that okay for you?

    Nobody said PCIE wasn't accredited. I'm fairly sure it is.
    In Europe accreditation works in a different way than in the US.
    I have emailed the French ministry of youth, education and sports.

    PCIE is under '' tutelle'' of the national ministry of education. It is regulated and it only awards degrees that have been approved by the French Rectorat of Paris, Îles de France.

    For comparence : some schools are not under tutelle like for example Paris College of Art.

    Paris College of international education being under tutelle of the Ministry of national education is a strong sign of accreditation.

    But like I said, I will get back to you when I have an answer from the French ministry of higher education or from the French embassy in Brussels.

    Thank you.

    You can also try Campus France in Belgium. They should provide such information;

    Thank you!
    Hadn't thought about mailing that one yet but indeed a good idea too.

    I didn't even mention PCIE. You're the one that said "So now I try to only get degrees and diplomas from cheap but legit places." If it's legit, it's accredited. End of story, 9 times out of 10. However, as others have pointed out in your other thread, though, PCIE seems to be neither legit nor accredited. Yes, accreditation works differently outside of the US, but PCIE does not appear to conform to the French standards of accreditation if one looks at the information presented so far.
