UHR was a recent guest on the Swedish Public Employment Service’s podcast “New in Sweden”. The episode “Get an evaluation for your foreign qualifications in Sweden” is available in four languages: Arabic, English, Farsi and easy-to-understand Swedish.


The idea with the pod is to provide people new to Sweden with tips on finding work and pursuing education – for example, tips on how to prepare for a job interview, how to write a winner job application or how you can help others understand your foreign education.

This is where the Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) comes in. One of our agency’s key tasks is evaluating foreign qualifications so that individuals who have completed their studies in another country can more easily find a job in Sweden. We issue recognition statements and offer a digital service that provides information on what a foreign degree compares to in Sweden. We also support employers who have questions about foreign qualifications.
