Recognition of foreign qualifications

The Swedish Council for Higher Education is the public agency responsible for the recognition of foreign qualifications in Sweden. We evaluate foreign secondary education, for individuals who want to pursue higher education at a Swedish higher education institution. If you have completed a foreign post-secondary vocational education, you can also apply to have it evaluated by us. The evaluation will provide you with a statement you can use when applying for work.
