In the general recognition system, the foreign education is assessed for comparability with the Norwegian degree structure, i.e. to determine whether it is equivalent to a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree or PhD.
General recognition says nothing about the academic content of an education, only what level it is on and how many years and credits it corresponds to.
A general recognition often makes it easier for an employer to see whether a foreign education fulfils the requirements of a particular post. In addition it will provide a guarantee about the authenticity.
An application for general recognition of foreign higher education should be sent to NOKUT (Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education).
