The Quality and Qualifications Irelandis the Irish centre for the recognition of international qualifications, known at Qualifications Recognition - Ireland. The Authority represents Ireland in a European Network of centres known as ENIC/NARIC (European National Information Centre/National Academic Recognition Information Centre) and NRP (National Reference Point) which promote the recognition of international qualifications throughout Europe and further afield.
The principal services we offer are as follows:
- International Qualifications Database
The International Qualifications Database contains information regarding foreign qualifications and education and training systems which is useful to holders of foreign qualifications, employers, institutions and other interested parties. It lists the foreign qualifications that have been processed to date by Qualifications Recognition - Ireland and states the advice that has been issued regarding the comparability of the qualifications in Ireland.
- Recognition of Foreign Qualifications in Ireland
If you have completed a qualification outside Ireland, you may wish to have it assessed in order to gain employment or undertake further studies in Ireland.
- Recognition of Irish Qualifications Abroad
If you hold an Irish qualification and wish to have it recognised abroad for employment or further studies, we can refer you to the appropriate authorities abroad.
