Policies and procedures for the recognition of qualifications


Link(s): Greek, English

Recognition of Qualifications held by Refugees


In relation to the fair recognition of qualifications held by refugees, KYSATS shows more flexibility when evaluating qualifications held by refugees, displaced persons and persons in a refugee-like situation. Refugees’ applications are examined separately on a case-by-case basis. Incomplete applications, due to missing supporting documents and to inadequately documented qualifications, often pose a challenge. KYSATS assessment procedures aim to establish whether applicants are likely to hold the qualifications they claim. Key challenges include: a) the provision of transparent and up to date Information on the assessment and recognition of qualifications held by refugees, displaced persons and persons in a refugee-like situation in both Greek and English language and b) the use of a background document or a similar information document. This document (which does not constitute an act of recognition) will provide a description of the qualifications applicants are considered likely to have obtained or completed with all available documents and supporting evidence. These will ensure that refugees, displaced persons and persons in a refugee-like situation, can access higher education, even in cases when their qualifications cannot be adequately documented.
