Specific recognition may be necessary in the following cases:
- If you wish to continue your studies at a Norwegian educational institution
- If you wish to work in a profession where there is a requirement for a specific degree with associated professional title.
In other words, specific recognition will usually be part of another application process. The individual institution will determine whether the foreign education fulfils the specific requirements as to breadth and depth for the discipline/subject or degree in question.
All specific recognition processes depend on you submitting complete documentation, including course descriptions, reading lists and any written thesis/dissertation. This type of recognition is a demanding process.
Remember: Most professions in Norway do not require specific recognition, but a general recognition would be a good alternative. Read more about general recognition
