Reports

Report: Effects of the statement on foreign higher education qualifications

A study by UHR has shown that evaluations of foreign higher educational qualifications help foreign graduates to find work more quickly. Nine per cent more are in work after one year if they have a statement. Eleven per cent more are in employment after three years. Read more about UHR’s study.

Short version of the report

The brochure, “One step on the road to the labour market” contains an abridged version of the report on the effects of the statement. It also contains a description of how the evaluation process takes place.

Both the report and the brochure can be ordered via UHR’s publications store (only in Swedish)
