– We contribute towards quality assurance and enhancement in education
For those who want recognition of foreign qualifications.
General recognition is the alignment of Norwegian and foreign higher education. NOKUT assesses how your education corresponds to education in Norway. We identify what type of degree you have and how many credits or study points you have.
This recognition will help you when you are looking for work within a profession or trade which is not regulated by law.
Only foreign higher education
In Norway we differentiate between recognition of foreign education taken at universities and university colleges, and foreign education taken at a vocational school or as upper secondary education and training. There are also a number of regulated professions which require recognition in the form of authorisation.
NB! Norwegian Competence Centre for Foreign Education will be temporarily closed for telephone calls and visits from 14th of July to 3rd of August. We will open as usual on 4th of August.
