Declaration of Equivalence of foreign qualifications at the academic level of Bachelor's or Master's Degree

The Sub-Directorate General for Qualifications and Recognition of Qualifications of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport is responsible for processing applications for the Declaration of Equivalence of foreign higher education qualifications at the academic level of official university Bachelor's or Master's degrees in specific areas of knowledge and fields.

The equivalence grants the foreign qualification the same effects corresponding to the academic level as the qualifications that are included in the specific area and field of study to which the equivalence has been declared throughout the national territory, with the exclusion of the professional effects with respect to those qualifications that can be obtained by recognition.
