The right to appeal against the recognition decision is provided by the Lisbon Recognition Convention (Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning Higher Education in the European Region, 1997). All holders of foreign educational documents have the right to apply for clear and transparent qualification assessment procedure. There may be two outcomes of the qualification assessment procedure:

  • recognition, based on which a Certificate of recognition of foreign educational documents is issued with the recognition decision;
  • denial of recognition, informing the applicant about the reasons for denial of recognition and about the nature of the substantial differences found. Please refer to this page for more details about the outcomes of the recognition procedure.
