Recommendations of recognition for foreign higher education qualifications

For work purposes we can issue recommendations of recognition for holders of foreign higher education qualifications which give access to non-regulated professions. This recommendation of recognition is a comparative grading which is not legally binding. The recognition of diplomas which give access to a non-regulated profession does not exist in Switzerland.
We do not issue recommendations for admission purposes.
