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.
We do not assess
- higher education qualifications giving access to
- unfinished studies / individual courses
- undergraduate qualifications of less than 3 years (fulltime) resp. less than 180 ECTS
- upper secondary school-leaving certificates
- further education courses and degrees
- language courses
- work experience
Assessment time: Not more than 2 months
Fees: The processing of applications is free of charge, but the applicant will have to cover the costs for notarisations and translations.
