NARIC ASSESSMENT

COMPARE YOUR OVERSEAS QUALIFICATIONS
WITH A UK NARIC ASSESSMENT

It doesn't matter where you come from - UK, Europe or anywhere else in the world, it is important to ensure that your qualifications are recognised. In the UK there is a national agency that carries out this service, they are called UK NARIC.

UK NARIC is the National Agency for providing information about qualifications and skills from outside the United Kingdom.

The National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC), is the National Agency providing the only official source of comparison information and advice on international education and training systems and overseas skills and qualifications.

UK NARIC are part of a wider network of information centres (ENICs) across Europe, including also Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA. Their services help individuals and organisations understand qualifications and skills from across the globe enabling pursuit of employment and education opportunities in the UK.

NARIC provide information and advice about vocational, academic and professional skills and qualifications from all over the world and they are used by higher education institutions, professional bodies and commercial organisations to help relate overseas qualifications to the UK qualifications framework.

They operate under contract to the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), providing information and advice on over 2,000 qualifications from over 180 countries. 

Some professions have their own system of assessing qualifications and you should check with the appropriate UK professional body. For instance, overseas nurses should first apply to the NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) for information on registration or the ONP (Overseas Nursing Programme) conversion course.
