Supporting smooth and fair recognition processes in higher education

The Academic Recognition Hub is a database of resources in the field of recognition of qualifications and study periods abroad. The Hub is a space for all higher education professionals and other parties with an interest in policies, processes and good practice in academic recognition. In addition to providing quick and easy access to relevant material, such as legal documents, manuals and reports, it also informs about training and development opportunities.

The Academic Recognition Hub does not include information on recognition of specific credentials or a qualification. Those seeking advice on access to a specific institution should contact the respective institution or the information centre of the country where the institution is located.
