Until 2003 it was the National Academic Information Centre (NAIC) under the Norway Network Council (in Norwegian: NAIC – Informasjonssenter for internasjonal utdanning ved Norgesnettrådet) that performed assessments of foreign education in Norway. NOKUT was established on 1 January 2003, and took over the task of assessing applications for recognition of foreign education. NOKUT does not verify statements issued by NAIC. Persons with statements from NAIC are encouraged to apply for NOKUT’s recognition.
