There may be two outcomes of the qualification assessment procedure:

RECOGNITION OF QUALIFICATIONS OF APPLICANTS WITH THE REFUGEE STATUS

The procedure of recognition of qualifications held by the refugee applicants or persons in need of complementary protection differs from the standard procedure of recognition, and is subject to international rules according to the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, 1951, and the Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees, 1967.

Despite the absence of all necessary documents the persons with the refugee status are entitled to have their credentials assessed by the competent recognition authorities. The recognition procedure of credentials of such applicants may be initiated without the complete package of documents unlike the ordinary rules of recognition procedure, and presupposes the simplified process. The basis for initiation of the recognition procedure is the document, which confirms the status of a refugee or a person in need of complementary protection in Ukraine. In cases of lack of information (documents) the procedure of credentials evaluation may include specially commissioned examinations, and interviews at higher educational institutions and/or relevant specialized organizations.

In order to facilitate the credentials evaluation of the refugees with the incomplete package of documents it is essential to obtain as much information as possible, namely:

  • the purpose of recognition (academic or professional);
  • all available credentials (diplomas, student identity card, academic records, credit books, syllabuses etc.);
  • all available documented proof of work experience (namely, certificates confirming the work experience, employment agreement, employment record book, employment reference letter, etc.).

All the provided information will add to the picture of education. Please be informed that the specific circumstances in which persons with refugee status are found to be should not be obstacles for initiation of the recognition procedure. The cost of the procedure is 51,00 UAH (administrative service for individual). In cases when additional expenses are required all possible measures will be taken to minimize them.

List of the required documents:

  1. Application for the credentials recognition (application form and completed specimen).
  2. Consent signed by the applicant granting permission to personal data processing (application form).
  3. Photocopy of the document, which confirms the status of a refugee or a person in need of complementary protection in Ukraine.
  4. Photocopy of the name change document (if applicable).
  5. All available educational documents.
  6. Confirmation of compulsory payment for the administrative service which is receipt form for individual and for legal entity.

Even if you are unable to submit all the necessary documents listed above please do not hesitate to apply to the Centre for a personal appointment. Our specialists will consult you and explain the procedure.

For more detailed information on credentials recognition procedure please feel free to contact us.
