- I haven’t completed my post-secondary vocational education – what do I do?
The Swedish Council for Higher Education only evaluates completed qualifications, so it is not possible to have part of your qualification/education evaluated.
If you have an incomplete post-secondary vocational education and want to continue studying in Sweden you should contact the education provider you are interested in. They can provide you with information about how to apply to have your credits transferred.
- I haven’t completed my secondary education – what do I do?
The Swedish Council for Higher Education only evaluates completed qualifications, so it is not possible to receive a recognition statement from a part of a qualification.
For information about how to complete your upper-secondary education and plan future studies, talk to a careers and study guidance counsellor.
- I want to enter Swedish higher education – what do I do?
Information about to apply for course or programmes in higher education is available at antagning.se, where you also make the application. Information about studying in Sweden can be found at studera.nu.
You do not need to obtain a statement from UHR before applying to higher education.
- I want to study abroad. Can UHR evaluate what my degree is equivalent to in that country?
Unfortunately we are unable to do this. UHR evaluates foreign qualifications and finds the Swedish equivalents, not the other way round. It is the job of the host country to make that evaluation.
If you have a Swedish degree and need to find the equivalent for the country in which you want to work or study, you must contact that country’s equivalent to UHR. For example, you can go to www.enic-naric.net.
- I want to work as a teacher in Sweden – what do I do?
If you have a foreign teaching degree and want to work in Sweden, you can apply for an evaluation of your foreign qualification at the Swedish Council for Higher Education.
However, the statement does not provide certification and cannot be used to obtain permanent employment as a teacher. It can be used to make it easier for you to apply for another job or for an employer to see whether your qualifications are suitable for a fixed-term appointment in a school.
Teachers and pre-school teachers are regulated professions in Sweden, read more and see the list at www.uhr.se/Regleradeyrken (in English)
