RECOGNITION OF FOREIGN QUALIFICATIONS

Welcome to the website that has all the necessary information about the procedure for the recognition of foreign educational documents in Ukraine.


Dear visitors!

During the quarantine period, the Centre has introduced some changes in the organization of receiving documents.

Due to the sharp increase in the number of appeals, the recognition department of the Centre operates in the mode of maximum loads.

Thanks for your help!


Acceptance of documents in the office of the Center is resumed from June 1, 2020 in a new format.

In order to ensure the safety and maximum protection of our clients and ENIC Ukraine employees, a set of anti-epidemic measures aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been introduced.

Learn about electronic applications, masks and other mandatory rules more details >>

Keep yourselves! Take care of your own safety and the safety of others - submit documents online!


If you have studied abroad but are planning to continue your education or work in your specialization area in Ukraine, you need to submit your educational documents for recognition (nostrification).

State-owned company "Information and Image Center" performs the functions of a national information center of academic mobility (Resolution No 924 of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, dated August 31, 2011). Specifically, the powers of the Center include verifying the authenticity of educational documents issued by educational institutions of foreign countries, as well as arranging for expert examinations to establish the equivalency of the qualifications awarded according to educational documents issued by educational institutions of foreign countries.

The final result of this document authenticity verification and qualification equivalency establishment is an appropriate decision of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine recognizing the foreign educational document as valid in Ukraine.

The Information and Image Center works according to the “single window” principle to ensure maximum convenience for you and the transparency of the recognition procedure applied by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine to your educational documents. Prior to preparing your documents for the recognition procedure, please read the following sections:
