The Department of Qualifications Recognition at UHR is Sweden’s ENIC-NARIC office. Consequently, our tasks include providing information about recognition and which organisation to approach if you wish to work in a regulated profession.
The Lisbon Recognition Convention commits the signatory countries to recognising each other’s upper secondary qualifications for access to higher education. Additionally, periods of study and qualifications from higher education in these countries are recognised for continuing study or work.
To follow the Lisbon Recognition Convention and in order to develop practical work on the recognition of qualifications, the EU and the Council of Europe have, in partnership with UNESCO, established two networks: NARIC (National Academic Recognition Information Centre) within the EU and ENIC (European Network of Information Centres) within UNESCO.
The networks cooperate closely and the various centres’ tasks include providing information about qualifications recognition and which organisation to approach if you wish to work in a regulated profession in a particular country.
The networks are also a guarantee that we comply with established common regulations and guidelines, and that people are free to check that we have performed our evaluations correctly.
