Swiss ENIC – Evaluation of Foreign Diplomas

The Swiss ENIC (European Network of Information Centres) is the national information centre for recognition issues. It is a member of the international ENIC-NARIC network which brings together the recognition bodies of countries that are members of the EU and/or the Council of Europe. 

We are currently experiencing a high surge of demands. For this reason, we will prioritise the following demands:

  • Applicants with residence in Switzerland
  • Applicants from countries, which are signatories of the Paris and Lisbon conventions.

We assess the following qualifications

  • Foreign higher education qualifications leading to a non-regulated profession

In Switzerland, there is no recognition of diplomas that give access to a non-regulated profession. For work purposes, we can issue a statement of comparability/evaluation for holders of foreign higher education qualifications which give access to non-regulated professions, if there is a comparable study programme in Switzerland. The statement of comparability/evaluation is a comparative assessment which is not legally binding.
