As countries have different education and qualifications systems, employers
or higher education institutions abroad do not necessarily understand your
qualification. Applying for credential evaluation/recognition is often the
essential step when planning to study or to work abroad. It assists you and

evaluation centre/service, the first step is to contact the national authority
in charge of higher education issues in the country where you need an
evaluation: please note that each country has specific rules and procedures to
