After assessing your academic career, the Committee responsible for the degree programme for which you are requesting recognition will decide:
If there are in place specific bilateral agreements or international conventions with the institution that awarded the degree, the decree of recognition will be automatic.
In case of partial recognition of a previous academic career, you can enrol in the relevant degree programme following the procedures below:
The decision of the Committee entitles you to enrol in the degree programme you applied for in the recognition procedure, by the deadlines and with the procedures applicable to you.
If you do not enrol by the designated deadlines you will have to re-apply for recognition and your application will have to be re-examined by the committee. In order to enrol in a degree programme with 'numerus clausus' (restricted admission), you will have to pass the admission test and rank among the winners.
