Information and advice on getting your foreign professional qulifications recognised

Recognition of foreign professional qualifications

The 'Integration durch Qualifizierung (IQ)' network in Niedersachsen currently has 14 contact offices for newcomers in all trades and professions, providing free independent advice on recognition of qualifications acquired abroad. Along with people holding foreign qualifications, the service is also available to companies seeking information on getting their employees' foreign qualifications recognised.

  • Recognition advice

    The qualification recognition advice service provides information about having foreign academic, trade and professional qualifications recognised in Germany. Clients receive individual advice and support through the entire recognition procedure, examining and preparing the available documentation, and practical help with the application.

  • Qualification advice

    The qualification advice service is for people whose foreign qualifications are not recognised, or only partly recognised, as valid in Germany. They receive support in finding appropriate courses and measures to acquire the necessary supplementary qualification that will lead to recognition of their academic or professional status.
