How a UK NARIC Statement of Comparability can help


Every year we get contacted by tens of thousands of individuals and thousands of organisations about Statements of Comparability; but what are they and how can they help?

In basic terms a Statement of Comparability (SoC) is an officially recognised document that confirms the recognition of overseas academic, vocational and/or professional qualifications and the comparable level in the UK.

Who uses them?

Any individual  coming to the UK to work or study should really get a SoC.  It ensures that an individual’s qualifications are understood.  SoCs are a key tool in facilitating mobility.  The recognition given by UK NARIC helps assure quality associated with an award and safeguard standards.

So, this document is pretty important.

As stated above tens of thousands of individuals use UK NARIC to obtain SoCs and the requests come from across the globe.  The table below shows the top ten countries over the past year:

And the chart below shows the range of reasons behind applications:

Why do these individuals use them?

We have conducted a survey into why people are using our service and the main reason as to why they were applying for a SoC was to enhance their application.

The comments made in the survey also back this up:

  • To improve chances of future employment in the UK
  • For better career options
  • To become a nurse
  • Entry for sixth form college
  • To make sure my degree was equivalent to UK degree, so that I don’t have to do another degree programme
  • Employment in (the) UK
  • Study and use it for proof for other jobs
  • For immigration to (the) UK
  • To study, to register and to find a job
  • For Immigration & Employment in future

Where can they be used?

All sorts of organisations use UK NARIC’s assessments as part of their day-to-day work.  Universities, colleges, Blue Chip employers, immigration consultants, careers advisors and professional bodies all use the information and data we provide.  If an individual with qualifications from outside the UK is applying to any of these types of organisation then a SoC could be helpful.  It can also support applications made under the Points Based System for immigration to the UK.

More info?

More information about the Statement of Comparability can be found on the UK NARIC website.

You can apply online and information about what documents you need to send are also explained in the Coming to the UK section of the site.

    Hello

    I sent my application to you for getting my qualifications compared to the UK standard…I got the response that my Master’s degree is comparable to British master’s degree but my teaching qualification (Bachelor in Education) got the following response ‘The above is a one year full time course of teacher education. Whilst it is of no further academic standing than the preceding Bachelor degree, we can confirm that holders of this award are entitled to teach at the lower secondary level in India. UK NARIC certificate not offered this award’ The above statement doesn’t give me any clear understanding of the status of my qualification. Can you please suggest what should be done further to improve my prospects of being a teacher in the UK?

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hi

      The first thing I need to point out is that the assessment is correct: we do not provide comparability for the BEd qualifications from India, but we do confirm the professional rights attached to it (in India). I would suggest that you should contact the Teaching Agency on 0800 389 2500 or visit http://www.education.gov.uk/teachregister as they are the body who can help you become a teacher in the UK.

      Good luck!

    İ was graduated from baskent university,department of physical therapy and rehabilitation.But i couldn’t find our universities comporability.Can you help me?

  17. RP says:

    Just wanted to ask why SSSC dont acknowledge NARIC UK? In terms of comparability.Im a 4 years BSNursing graduate from the philippines.SSSC wants me to take up svq 3 in order for me to be registered with them.

    • UK NARIC says:

      The Scottish Social Services Council are responsible for registering people who work in social services and regulating their education and training in Scotland. They also register key groups of Scotland’s social service workers. They do use UK NARIC’s services, but I understand that they have particular requirements for those that they register to work in this sector.

      It might be best to speak directly to the SSSC about why they feel that it is necessary to undertake further training before registering with them.

  18. Catherine Jasion says:

    Hello I had received my statement of Comparability.but I really would like to know the translation said Naric confirm that a diploma of higher Education falls on the same level of the National Qualifications Frame work as N/SVQ LEVEL 4. Will this Level 4 also appear on the Certificate, or it will just say up to N/SVQ Standard??
    Pleas Please reply me !!!

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hello Catherine,
      Please be advised, the Certificate of Comparability confers no greater authority than the Statement that you have already received. Nor does it contain any additional information. In fact the additional information included on your Statement of Comparability will not appear on the Certificate, and if you need to demonstrate the comparison of your qualification in relation to an N/SVQ standard, we would suggest presenting your Statement of Comparability directly to the institute/body to which you are applying.

      I hope this information is of assistance to you. If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

      Kind regards,

      UK NARIC

    hi, in 2008 I did UK Naric comparison for my Lithuanian teachers certificate, I got a response, which said I had NVQ level 4, but I find it difficult to start work with it, is there any information that can help me to get job with it?
    thanks

  20. doodle says:

    I received a response for my PGDE from Hong Kong saying it was comparable to the PGDE British standard.

    Then the additional information said : Can teach in Hong Kong.

    What does this mean? Does it mean that I cannot teach in the UK? The UK requires an additional part where you have to gain QTS, so does this mean, I can now go ahead and get QTS under the OTTP? (Overseas teachers training programme)?

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hello, your statement provides clarification on the comparable levl in UK terms and the additional information states what professional rights are associated with the qualification. With regard to whether you can teach in the UK you’ll need to check with the Teaching Agency; Tel: 0300 7900 225 or visit https://www.education.gov.uk/help/contactus/ta

      Good Luck!

      • UK NARIC says:

        Hi, we’d need to know a bit more about your awards in order to help- probably best that you call our Enquiries Service Centre (+44(0)871 330 7033) or email us on communications@naric.org.uk for advice on the comparability of your awards.

  21. Asma says:

    I have done master in applied psychology from Pakistan. What’s the equivalent of my edu in uk? I need to study further

    • UK NARIC says:

      Pakistan has a large and complex education system. Comparing qualifications from Pakistan to the UK’s frameworks considers a lot of differenet elements; the institution, the subject studied, when the qualification was awarded, the grade etc. Therefore it is probably best to get in touch with us on +44 (0)871 330 7033 to discuss your qualification and then you’ll be able to make the best decision about your next steps.

      • esha says:

        I have done MBA from GIFT University Pakistan what is equivalent of my educational qualification in uk .. I need to apply for british citizenship in near future and i have a plan to do teaching in uk

      • UK NARIC says:

        Unfortunately we are not able to discuss individual qualifications in a public forum, such as this however I would recommend that you contact our information team to discuss your case further on t: +44 871 330 7033, Office hours: Monday to Friday, 09.00 – 17.00 (UK time), or if you prefer email: communications@naric.org.uk

  22. Munib says:

    Hi!

    I am willing to apply in one of the teaching courses in UK. I already have a statement of comparability from you which says that my Masters Degree from Pakistan is equivalent to Bachelors degree in UK. I have 74% marks in that degree, will this be equivalent to 2:1 (upper second) or what?

    • UK NARIC says:

      Due to disparities in the mode of study, grading, teaching, assessment systems and content, it is not possible to convert grades from one system to another. The interpretation of grades and determination of degree classifications – where appropriate – is carried out by admitting institutions / employers in the UK in the context of the system in which that award was obtained.

      • Hussain says:

        But UK NARIC mostly cheating with Pakistani degree holder students if 2 students applied for comparability if both have degree same institute and same department they are giving comparability one students and other rejected shame on this decision of UK NARIC

      • UK NARIC says:

        Hi Hussain, sorry to hear you feel our service has been inconsistent. Would you be able to provide more details so we can look into this? Please contact us on communications@naric.org.uk Kind regards, UK NARIC

  23. syed says:

    Respected Sir,

    ASA

    hope that this message finds you fine and in good health. sir, i have completed my BSC (Hons) with 360 credits and 3 years of duration while MSc with 180 credit hours and of 1 year duration, both from the university of bedfordshire, UK {UK standard Qualification}. now i am applying for PhD studies in Pakistan but the university is refusing my application due to the duration of my studies. it is imperative to mention here that although the duration of my studies is less but the earned credit hours are enough for me to get admission in PhD studies. please advice me appropriately. i will be thankful for your immediate reply

    • UK NARIC says:

      Thanks for the query and we’re sorry to hear of the difficulties you are facing. Sadly, there is nothing that we can do in this instance: we can only provide assessment of overseas awards coming into the UK; whether an overseas university accepts British awards is a different matter. It might be worth contacting the University of Bedfordshire to see if there is anything they can issue that will help your case. Good luck.

  25. Hi, I am currently teaching in India. I have competed my Bachelors of Education (B.Ed) which is the basic prerequisite in India for teaching professionals. I have completed my graduation and post graduation in M.A English from Indian universities. I would now like to teach in the U.K so wanted to know as to how far my qualifications are useful as per the norms in the U.K and what further qualifications or exams do I need to give to be able to be a part of the teaching fraternity in the U.K.

    • UK NARIC says:

      In order to enter the teaching profession in the UK, the people you would need to speak to is the Teaching Agency https://www.education.gov.uk/help/contactus They will be able to help you with queries regarding requirements and what you need to do next. As you hold awards that were gained outside of the UK, they will most likely expect you to present evidence of comparability- this is where UK NARIC can help. If this is the case, we suggest you apply for the Statement of Comparability http://bit.ly/XrMrXO and send your Standard X and XII, Bachelor degrees (BA and BEd) and Master’s.

  26. Candace says:

    I just wished to just take a few minutes and inform you that I appreciated the post.
    I genuinely don’t believe that most people know exactly how much hard work that goes into putting together a webpage. I know this will be kind of random nevertheless it really bugs me sometimes. Nonetheless fantastic website.

    My wife is a German National. we intend on returning to the UK soon. She has multiple German qualifications. My question is, how are these charged for a SoC? One charge per individual qualification or one charge per application including multiple seperate qualifications?

  28. Mark says:

    Hi,
    I completed High School (four- year general lyceum) in Poland and after that I passed maturity examination and I obtained Maturity Certificate (equivalent to full A-Level in UK) which gives me the entrance to higher education.
    I also completed two-year Post-High School College of Information Technology(IT) (non-university level education),I passed an examination and I awarded the title Computer Science Technician.
    Could somebody tell me please,what’s the equivalent of my education in UK?I would like to continue studying in UK.Thank you.

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hi Mark, if you would like us to discuss the comparability of your awards then you’d need to call us on +44 (0)871 330 7033 as we can’t confirm comparability in writing (plus we’d need a bit more detail).

  29. mrs asad says:

    hello my name is mrs asad i have done graduation in psychology economics and english from punjab uni of pakistan can you tell me what my qualification equlent in english what further qualification i need for a bachelor degree.And according to my education now what kind of jobs i can get in uk.

    • UK NARIC says:

      We’d need more details in order to provide comparability, it is probably best if you call us on +44(0)871 330 7033 to discuss your qualification. As far as finding employment is concerned, it would depend upon what sort of job you are looking for. It is not really our role to advise which jobs to apply for but a Career Path Report might help you (http://bit.ly/YTzY3C). First of all, however, obtaining UK NARIC comparability so that potential employers understand what she has and what you can offer would be advisable.

    Hi,

    Pls let me know , what are all documents are required to get a qualification compatibility report for graduation, is it required to submit confidentiality report for my academic institutions also.

    Thanx in advance.

    • UK NARIC says:

      All details are available on the NARIC website, but in essence it’s a 10 to 15 working day process that requires the final certificate and transcript (together with English translations, where necessary) for each award submitted. Please see http://bit.ly/UiGPfl for details on our services.

  31. sudipta pal says:

    Hi.

    One of friend with AMIE India has not been permitted to have British Bachelor (Honors) Degree in Engineering level certificate issued by NARIC,UK. He got got British bachelors (ordinary) comparability from Uk Naric.

    where as earlier so many applicant who had passed the same degree from same institution (Institution of Engineers india) had got British Bachelor (Honors) Degree in Engineering level certificate.

    Request you to throw some light on the subject & clear the contradiction.

    • UK NARIC says:

      The UK NARIC service looks at qualifications from end of compulsory education right up to PhD level from over 180 countries worldwide. In order to keep up to date on developments and changes on education systems, we have a rolling Information Development Plan (IDP) that reviews countries on a priority basis. When reviewing countries, it is possible that new information / evidence comes to light as a result of our research which may, in turn, affect how we assess a particular award. We cannot afford to do a piece of work and assume that it is correct forever more- it is vital that we revisit information and carry out research to ensure the credibility and accuracy of our data. For this reason, it is possible that assessments will change over time. Whilst we understand that it may be disappointing, it is sometimes the case that assessments are ‘lowered’ as a result of our research (of course, the reverse may be true and assessments may be ‘upgraded’). Effectively, our work is organic insofar as it is prone to change- our information is only ever for guidance based on a set of criteria that apply to all our assessments and is not an authoritative ruling. The decision to admit an applicant remains with the admitting institution / potential employer who make take other factors into consideration.

    • UK NARIC says:

      You can check the level of your qualification by giving us a call on 0044 (0)871 330 7033. We will be able to confirm the level in the UK. It is up to individual institutions to decide on whether you meet their entry criteria. It might be worthwhile checking the GTTR website (www.gttr.ac.uk) and the Department for Education site (www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching)

  34. Sania says:

    Hi
    I have a four years Bachelors in business administration finance BBA(honours) degree from a very renouned university in Pakistan…A few days back I sent my qualifications for comparability to NARIC and I got a reply that my degree was equal to a diploma in higher education..my concern is that my friends with the same degree from the same university got into prestigious universities of England and their degree was recognised as full bachelors degree so then why is mine equivalent to just a diploma…

  35. Hi, I just want to find out roughly (before I send in my documents to NARIC) if my degree/ qualifications in the Philippines equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree in UK? I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Lyceum of the Philippines, I am also a registered and licensed Secondary Education Teacher. I have over seven years teaching experience in international schools in China, teaching IGCSE, AS-A Level History. I passed my TOEFL IBT with a grade equivalent to CEFR1-2. I am married to a British citizen and planning to join him in UK soon. I am also thinking of getting some teaching trainings or courses in UK so I can eventually get qualified as a UK teacher. What is the best route for me to take? I appreciate your help and advice. I look forward to your reply.

    • UK NARIC says:

      Bachelor degree comparability for awards obtained in the Philippines can vary markedly, due to the system of ‘Prestigious Universities’ and ‘Centres of Excellence’ that is in place there. It would be best, if possible, to contact us by telephone on +44 (0)871 330 7033 so that an Information Advisor can take the details of your award / university and provide verbal comparability. This would allow you to know, up front, what the assessment of your award will be before you apply (should you choose to do so). With regards to TOEFL, if you need evidence that your proficiency meets CEFR C1, we can help here too. This is a separate service called the English Language Assessment, details of which can be found at http://bit.ly/VDVmmB

  36. Trish Tan says:

    Hi,

    Just wanted to find out how do you classify prestigious universities in other countries? I am surprised that my university was not included and we always have topnotchers and 100% passing percentage of exam takers in the national board exam. Is there anything that the West Visayas State University lacking in the curriculum that the degree awarded in the Philippines is only compared foundation degree as opposed to the other universities earning an ordinary degree without honours? Hoping to hear from you soon. Many thanks.

    • UK NARIC says:

      The UK NARIC assessment service applies a set of criteria in the comparability process. In addition to entry requirement, duration, purpose of qualification and progression route, another factor is the status of the awarding institution. For the vast majority of countries that we hold data on, the ‘status of the institution’ extends no further than suitable recognition within the home country. However, in the instance of the Philippines, an official ranking is in place meaning that institutions cannot be treated the same across the board. Certain institutions are officially considered ‘prestigious institutions’ or ‘centres of excellence’- this is not the case for West Visayas State University. Whilst we are not trying to detract from the strong reputation of West Visayas State University within the Philippines and indeed beyond, as we do not have evidence that this is a prestigious university or centre of excellence it cannot be treated as such which, in turn, may affect comparability.

      • Trish Tan says:

        Hi, thanks for the reply. I just wanted to find out if the records of prestigious universities listed in your system is being updated annually. As far as I know WVSU has been on the top performing schools many many years back before I graduated. May I know where do you obtain the list of prestigious universities.
        I have attached the current results of top performing school or perhaps if you want further more information, here is the link , http://inquirer.net
        MANILA, Philippines – A total of 16,219 out of 37,887 passed the Nurse Licensure Examination held from June 2-3, 2013, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) said on Monday.
        Velez College graduate Beverly Anne Felicio Balagon topped the exam, receiving a score of 87 percent.
        University of Santo Tomas (UST) graduate Jamila Jane Uy Borlagdan and West Visayas State University-La Paz graduate Mylene Grace Dacula Gonzaga shared the second spot, both with a score of 86.80 percent in the exam.
        Three schools shared the top spot in the list of 10 performing schools in this year’s examination: the West Visayas State University-La Paz, Cebu Normal University (Cebu State College), and University of the Philippines-Manila. All three had a passing rate of 100 percent, the PRC said.
        The rest of the top performing schools were Chinese General Hospital Colleges, Benguet State University-La Trinidad, University of Santo Tomas, Trinity University of Asia (Trinity-QC), Saint Paul University-Dumaguete, Xavier University, Velez College, Cebu City Medical Center (CC Gen. Hosp.), and Saint Paul University-Manila.

        Hi, our information management system is available on the UK NARIC website (http://www.ecctis.co.uk/naric/Individuals/Code%20of%20Practice/default.aspx), but it seems that this query is about your own assessment and rather than discuss it is this public forum it might be best to contact us in 4400(0)871 330 7033 to discuss the issues you raise here.

        If you are not happy with the assessment you have received you can always ask for a reassessment (http://www.ecctis.co.uk/naric/Code%20of%20Practice/Application%20Procedures.aspx).

        Hope this helps.

      • trish tan says:

        Thank you for the reply. But I still couldn’t understand. Does this mean that the comparability that the NARIC has provided is based on the instiitution that has been known prestigious regardless of the educational attainment, curriculum of the university and the qualifications we have provided?
        I have attached the current top performing schools in the country and have actually got a list of prestigious universities you have in your system ( this list was from 3 years ago) and to my surprise two or more on the list were not even on the list of top performing schools plus they have a low passing percentage of examinees in the National Nursing Board exam. I just feel that the standards set for comparing the educational attainment needs to be more of the curriculum and how the universities produced good quality of Nurses rather than the impression of being “prestigious”. The word prestigious can be misleading as I believe that some of them were classified prestigious because they pay higher tuition fees or you cannot enroll because of your socio-economic status.

        Here is the link – http://www.prcboardnews.com/2013/07/top-10-performing-schools-performance-of-schools-june-2013-nle-nursing-board-exam.html

    Hi,

    I wanted to know how many credits I’ve earned in total from my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree gained from a four year course in the Philippines, and how many credits do people get in completing degree in Nursing in the UK.
    I was told that my BSNursing degree (which I did for four years, and passed a licensure exam on top of it in order to become a full pledge/certified/legally allowed to practice nurse in the Philippines) does not compare to an undergraduate nursing degree here in the UK which is only of 3 years course without any licensure examination. Moreover, I had to do top up courses for my qualification to be considered equal to a UK nursing degree. Is this information correct?
    Skillswise and in terms of nursing/medical/pharmacological knowledge the Philippine nurses have, I am quite doubtful that our qualification is considered less than that of UK nursing degree wherein from my experience and observation newly qualified staff nurse have not even cannulated, performed NGT insertion, cathetherise, use medical/technical terms, use a glucometer, use a manual BP apparatus, make a comprehensive nursing care plan, interpret basic ECG readings, and so many things to mention.

    In addition to my query, I’d like to know if I need to include my highschool qualification in my UK Naric application if my purpose is further studies or professional employment.

    Do I need to add any qualifications gained in the UK?

    Do I need to include my Overseas Nurses programme/adaptation course wwhich I completed in order to be registered with NMC to practice nursing in the UK?
    This is a 15 credit course; will it add up to the credits I gained from my overseas nuring qualification?

    Thank you very much for your anticipated response.

    Jb

    • UK NARIC says:

      Thanks for your comments. Firstly, it should be pointed out that if you have questions relating to an assessment you’d need to follow the UK NARIC clarification procedure- details can be found at https://www.naric.org.uk/naric/Code%20of%20Practice/Application%20Procedures.aspx. What we can say is that although duration is a criterion used in the assessment process, it is not a determining factor. A Bachelor degree in the UK may indeed last three years, but equally it may be four or five yet the end result would be the same: a Bachelor degree is a Bachelor degree, irrespective of duration. UK NARIC assessments are limited to the academic comparability of an overseas award- professional competencies are not an area we assess, so your eligibility / suitability to practise this profession in the UK would be the domain of the Nursing and Midwifery Council, not UK NARIC.

      The UK NARIC Statement of Comparability may include as many nationally-recognised awards as you chose to send- the fee is per applicant, not per qualification. Therefore, if you were to make an application, you could send both your BSC (Nursing) and High School Diploma under the same enquiry number.

    Hello!

    I am from Brazil, and I have a Technologist undergraduate. I’ve been researching and Technologist, that is a very common undergraduate in Brazil, doesn’t exists in UK. The “Associates Degrees” are not exactly the same, since my education was consist in 3 years and not 2 years.
    There is a equivalent for this title in UK? Should I submit the form and certificate to a better evaluation?
    I am concern that it would not be a graduation degree (or undergraduation as call in UK).

    Thanks.

    • UK NARIC says:

      It sounds like an award we are aware of so we can provide assessment. The best thing to do would be to make an application for an SoC, and if you want to know up front what this will compare with, then you could call us and we’ll help you over the phone.

    Hello,

    I’m finishing my degree at University of Ljubljana – Faculty of Computer and Information Science, from Slovenia, EU.

    Official title that will go with my education will be:
    Univerzitetni diplomirani inženir računalništva in informatike
    which is usually written shorter as:
    Uni. dpl. ing. rač. in inf.

    It’s a 4,5 years course + additional semester (i.e. term) for writing and defending a diploma. This course is awarded with 300 ECTS points.

    I already know the UK NARIC will be able to provide Letter of Comparibility for my education.

    My Question:
    What I’d like You ask is whether my degree will be recognised as British Bachelor’s degree or British Master’s degree?

    Best regards.

      Hi, I ‘ve already sent an enquiry regarding your classification of prestigious universities and was advised to ring the office as it was thought that it was only my personal concerns.. Unfortunately, i cannot get hold of someone everytime I call. Just for your information there are a few of us who asked for a statement of comparibility and had NVQ level coz we came from the same university. Until now, we cannot still figure out how you classify prestigious universities in the Philippines. We dont get a clear answer on this and maybe if you can help us by giving us the agency in the Philippines that give you the information about prestigious universities and we can make an appeal. Would the Commission on Higher Education be resposible on this? Please let us know. By the way, you asked about the list of Universities who are classified to have degree without honours. Here is the list as of 2009:

      1. Liceo de Cagayan
      2. Saint Louis University
      3. Saint Paul University
      4. San Pedro College
      5. Silliman University
      6. St. Paul’s Iloilo
      7. University of Santo Tomas
      8. University of the Philippines-Manila
      9. Liceo de Cagayan

      Also:

      1. Asian Institute of Management
      2. Ateneo de Manila University
      3. De La Salle University
      4. University of Santo Tomas
      5. University of the Philippines

      Hoping to hear from you soon and I believe this will be treated fairly. Many thanks.

  42. SH says:

    My NARIC letter says that my BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) is “Comparable to British Bachelor (Ordinary) degree standard”

    What does this really mean? Does it mean that my BDS is comparable to a British BDS degree? If so what does the “ordinary” degree mean?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hi SH, thanks for the question. The UK NARIC assessment service does not compare to specific degree titles such as BDS, or BA, or LLB, but to a level within the UK national qualification framework (the QCF). It is for this reason that the term ‘standard’ appears in your assessment (standard meaning ‘level’, rather than the other meaning of ‘basic’). In the UK, there are two types of Bachelor degree: (Ordinary) and (Honours). The difference between the two relates to the style of study; (Honours) degrees are typically research based programmes with few ‘contact hours’, meaning students are expected to study subject matter independently before submitting work. There is usually the requirement of a lengthy dissertation based on independent research also. (Ordinary) degrees, on the other hand, involve more contact with lecturers and are not as heavily oriented towards independent research. So the fundamental difference is the style of the degree, not the grade obtained as is often assumed.

      If you require more information about this, you could call us and speak to an Information Officer who will be glad to provide further explanation for you.

      • Dunja says:

        Hi Naric,
        If the difference is just in the style of the degree then how come the bursaries are awarded to honours degrees (when studying PGCE course) but no to an ordinary degree? My 4 year full time teaching degree from a credited university from Serbia hasn’t been given honours equivalent whilst the same university minus one year is now the equivalent. In addition to that the same course in Bosnia and Herzegovina has honours? I must admit I am a tad confused and would very much appreciate some insight.
        That said I am aware that Serbian schooling system might not be fully clear and you cant be expected to have in depth knowledge of everything.
        To conclude, is it worth me requesting another statement of comparability in hope to have the honours equivalent?
        Thank you
        Dunja

      • UK NARIC says:

        Hi Dunja,

        Thank you for your post,

        A UK awarded Honours Degree & Ordinary Degree do sit at the same level in terms of the UK’s Educational framework. However they do represent different methodologies in the delivery of a course.(more details for understanding the Statement of Comparability can be found here: http://bit.ly/1wdtbQc)

        Unfortunately, as organisations offering bursaries are autonomous organisation they are free to use their discretion when setting the eligibility requirements for their funding and may determine that they only wish to offer it, for those demonstrating equivalence to an honours degree. However, if you hold an overseas qualification it may be worth contacting the organisation offering the bursary directly for further consideration.

        UK NARIC are unable to comment on comparisons for qualifications in a public forum but our records show that your comparison was done back in 2011 and UK NARIC do continually research qualifications and update our database meaning that the levels for an award can change over time. As such you may find it worthwhile submitting it for reassessment and including these concerns as part of the application for us to look into.

        Unfortunately, as the window for reassessment of a Statement of Comparability is within 6 months of the original application, this matter would need to be treated as a brand new application. Details including how to apply can be found here: http://bit.ly/XrMrXO.

        If however you should have any further enquiries please do not hesitate to get in touch.

    I want to send my qualifications to uk naric.BUT on my graduation degree ,my first name is misspelled.And on post graduate degree bit is right. Could you please let me know will this kind of mistake will effect the decision about the statement of comparability.
    Thanx

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hi Anjaly,

      Thanks for the query. If a university has issued a document with a spelling mistake, it is likely that the Information Services team would pick up on this- as you doubtless appreciate, it would be treated as a cause for concern, especially if it’s from an institution whose certificates we see regularly. However, we do also understand that mistakes happen, so it would be best to arrange for the institution to provide confirmation that there is a mistake in their documentation to support your application.

      Best regards,

      UK NARIC

    I am from Pakistan, but have been living in the UK since two years as married partner of a British citizen. I shall be applying for my ILR in the near future. I have done Masters in English Literature from an internationally recognized university of Pakistan. My question is, if I send my degree to UK NARIC to get a Statement of Comparability and if it is approved, can I then provide the statement as evidence to UKBA in order to fulfill their mandatory requirement to have a listening and speaking qualification in English at B1 CEFR? Earlier I opted for English Language Assessment service and I received the reply that my degree does not meet the requirements of C1 CEFR. I am not aiming for C1 level since UKBA requires proficiency in English only at B1 level. Any reply to my query would be much appreciated.

    Hi
    As per the statement of comparability provided my NARIC, my Bachelors degree and Masters degree from India are comparable to British standards, however the statement have no mention of grade comparison like 2.1,2.2, 3rd etc. I am wondering what does “comparable to British standards” mean? Does it mean that the grade achieved in overseas qualification is similar to British grade or does it mean that comparison of grades is not available?
    To be eligible and to apply for teacher training bursary, I need to see if my qualification is at least equivalent to 2.2 grade. Without grade comparison , I may not be eligible for bursary.

    Could you please advice how could I get a statement of comparison with equivalent grades mentioned?

    Many thanks

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hi Sunaimi

      Thanks for the query. In order to carry out an English Language Assessment, first of all the award has to be considered comparable to the British Bachelor degree standard. A Nepalese Bachelor degree may not meet this standard, so it would be wise to contact us so we can take further details to see how this award would be assessed. Assuming it does meet the British Bachelor degree standard, we would need confirmation on the medium of instruction. With regards to ACCA, this award cannot be used for the English Language Assessment as it’s professional in nature. I hope this helps. If you can get in touch, our number is 0871 330 7033.

  63. Hello! I am a South African, who taught in the UK from 2005-2008, during which time I applied for and received a Statement of Comparability, assessing my BPrimED qualification that I obtained in South Africa at the University of Kwa Zulu Natal. After receiving the statement, I thereafter wrote the Skills Tests and obtained Qualified Teacher Status whilst in permanent employment through DfE and teaching at a school in East Dulwich, London.

    I left the UK in 2008 and am currently applying for a distance learning Masters/Phd in Education and cannot find my NARIC Statement of Comparability, neither can I find my NARIC reference number. I have been traveling quite a lot and while I reside in the Philippines, am presently in SA.

    I do have my original QTS certificate here and copies of my skills tests notification letters. BUT what I really need is a copy of the Statement of Comparability and hopefully to be issued a Certificate.

    I am hoping that you will be able to track my records on your system with this information:

    Full name: Juanita Naidoo
    Teacher Reference number: 0880663

    My sister lives in London and if you can track my records and issue copies, I would arrange for her to make the payment and provide her postal address as well.It would be a shame to have to re-submit my documents but if there really is no other way I would need advice on how to go about the process!

    Could you please advise? Fingers crossed that you can find me on your system….!

      Your unique enquiry number for your application completed in 2008 is 1941746310. Since your request has been received more than three months after the original Statement of Comparability has been sent, you will need to submit a photocopy of the relevant qualification(s) to UK NARIC in order to verify the level of your assessment. We will charge £12.00 (£14.40 incl. VAT) for re-issuing this statement. Please note there is an additional postage charge payable; please see the delivery options page for further details.

      • Thank you very much! This is good news:-) As I am traveling, my sister will make the payment over the phone, provide her London address for delivery, and then courier the certificate to me. I will find it easier to fax copies of my degree certificate, transcripts and SACE certificate,should it also be required again. Just to clarify before proceeding, must my sister make the phone payment before I fax the documents through? Or is it vice versa?

        I also have a secondary query. I am wondering about the comparability of a post-grad distance learning course in Sustainability Education that I completed through the University of Catalonia in 2012. Would it be possible for this to be processed, could it be done with the same unique enquiry number or would that be a different application?

        Thanks for your advice.

        Hi Juanita, thanks for the query. If you can fax copies of your awards to us on 0871 330 7055, making sure your reference number is included, then you will receive a confirmatory email to say that we’ve received the fax. Once this happens, you could let your sister know who could then call us and arrange for payment to be taken. As for the Spanish award, this would not incur any additional cost- however, it doesn’t sound like this is a national award within the Spanish national qualification framework so it might not be possible for us to provide comparability.

  64. Hello! This is Juanita again. Thank you for your advice. I have great news! I found my original statement of comparability from 2008! My 4yr BPrimEd was assessed as comparable to British Bachelors (Ordinary) Degree. Could you advise if I would need to have it verified in order to strengthen my application or should I proceed with what I currently have? Would the levels have changed since then? I have noticed for some Masters programmes, an Honours Degree is a pre-requisite and for others the QTS is sufficient. Which made me wonder whether some institutes consider a Bachelors (Ordinary) Degree with QTS status equivalent to an Honours level? I am in the process of preparing required documents for course applications. If advised to re-send documents for verification, I will fax them asap. Thank you!

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hi Juanita, glad to hear you found the statement! I’ve checked the levels provided and the assessment is still correct, so there’s no need to apply for a replacement.

    • Certificate showing that you have a speaking and listening qualification in English at B1 CEFR or higher, or an equivalent level qualification; OR
    • Certificate showing that you have obtained an academic qualification deemed by UK NARIC to meet the recognised standard of a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or PhD in the United Kingdom and (i) an English Language Assessment (ELA) from UK NARIC confirming that the qualification was taught or researched in English or (ii) the qualification was taught or researched in the UK or a majority English speaking country (other than Canada).

    Does it mean that I still have to order a Statement of Comparability to support my application?

    Thanks in advance,

    Svetlana.

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hi Svetlana, thanks for the query. You may wish to speak with the Home Office directly about their specific requirements as we are a separate agency, but I should clarify that UK NARIC is only able to provide a Statement of Comparability for complete awards so until all papers are passed, we wouldn’t be able to provide our service. I suggest you follow this link in order to find an answer to your query http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/aboutus/contact/enquiries/. I hope this helps. Best regards, UK NARIC

    Hi,
    I had seen some previous comments regarding AMIE, India recognition. I’m an AMIE graduate more over, Since we have no use of getting a statement of comparability of AMIE equivalent to Bsc (ordinary) degree kindly provide the present status of the equivalency of the AMIE degree in UK so that we can apply for it. Other wise it would be a waste of time and money!
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    I have done my Bachelors in Dental Sugery (BDS) from University of Health Sciences, Lahore, Pakistan in 2010 and have a Certificate of Comparability to British Bachelor Degree (Ordinary). I require an English Language Assessment to apply for ILR with the Home Office. The medium of instruction in my institute was always in English and all my examinations were conducted in English, I have a letter confirming the same from my institute.

    I would like to confirm will I get my English Language Assessment after having a Certificate of Comparability or shall I use my Certificate for Comparability for ILR?

    Your response will help many.

    Regards,

    Sherry

    Do you recognize a degree from University of Peshawar? It’s a legitimate, huge university in Pakistan. My statement of Comparability was returned as being inconclusive. U never returned my original degree and I was asked that the university send the degree to yourselves directly, which they did. It’s not fair that you won’t check thoroughly if the degree is genuinely from the only main public university of the province, where it’s so easy to cross check and compare it. All fee in vain. I did all the leg work for you. You still returned it as being unknown. Your decision stated it to be of an unknown format. I gather it’s because their degrees are now more decent with photographs an all so isn’t it a thought to ask them for their format these days. Believe it or not change and progress sometimes happens in Pakistan too. Since my statement was returned in 2010 , I am hoping you would have updated your system and would now acknowledge a degree from University Of Peshawar Pakistan. Sorry I sound bitter but the inefficiency left my future in doldrums.

      Hi Aleesha, thanks for the query.

    Hello, Dear,

    I have done my Bachelor’s Degree in Math on 2009. I just been looked at the ‘overseas grade comparison’ list and saw some requirements of comparable bachelors degrees from Lithuania to the British Bachelor’s with the essential grades. The same i saw that for comparison is used system from 1-10 grade scale and if grade is 10,9,8 is equivalent to 1st,2.1,2.2 to the British Bachelors (Honors) Degree Standard.
    The Grade means the average or the grade of Bachelor’s paper grade? For example: If Bachelor’s paper (grade) is 7, but average of all the marks in study period is 8.6 (GPA), but from math subjects is GPA approx. 9. What type of British bachelor’s could be comparison.
    Many Thanks

    I have master degree in computing from one of the oldest and well known university, University of the Punjab, pakistan. The medium of instruction, syllabus and examination system in this university is english. I applied for comparability statement and UK naric confirmed it as a bachelor degree in uk. I also applied for the ELA and despite having been met all requirements stated on uk naric’s website, i came up with the result that It does not meet the English CEFR level C1. Further it states ‘we understand English is the medium of instruction in the teaching and examination system of the department providing this award, it unfortunately has not been possible to confirm that the necessary English language requirements for CEFR level C1 are met upon completion.’
    is this not contradiction to UK naric’s own set of requirements for ELA? considering when all conditions (UK equivalent bachelor degree and medium of instructions should be english etc) are achieved. Could you please tell me what is that hidden requirement i could not achieve?

      The English Language Assessment is an assessment to see if your qualification meets the C1 level in the Common European Framework for English Proficiency, the requirements specified on our website are the minimum requirements for UK NARIC to look into and perform the assessment itself and is not a guarantee that your course would have been taught to the required level. If you are unhappy with the assessment received and believe it to be incorrect you can follow the appeals process specified here: http://bit.ly/1nUZD4m

      We are able to provide comparability information for qualifications that constitute a national standard in the education system of the country of origin. Unfortunately we are unable to provide a comparability statement for grades obtained in these qualifications.

      It is recommended that you present transcripts directly to potential employers/admitting institutions for consideration on an individual basis in line with specific grade requirements alongside the UK NARIC Statement of Comparability. Details on how to apply for this service can be found here: http://bit.ly/XrMrXO

      I hope this information is of assistance to you.

  96. Hi, My wife has done llb from Osmania University in India. We are now british citizen and she intends to get into law profession.
    Is this degree equivalent to UK llb? and an she taken up LPC directly.
    I would really appreciate if you could provide feedback, so we can plan to apply to UKNARIC and make further plans.

    Kindly indicate if career path evaluation is asked, would this provide details so it is clear to the university on equivalency. I have check the Solicitor Regulation Authority webiste, where they asked to get UKNARIC euivalence for overseas education. So I’m expecting the comparision to be for the law and not a british standard degree as the Education instituion will follow UKNARIC guidance

    • UK NARIC says:

      Dear Raghu,

      Thank you for your post,

      UK NARIC will provide an overall comparability for your wife’s qualifications in the UK’s educational framework it will not comment on how it compares specifically to a British law degree. However for professional recognition and progression she will then be able to provide our statement to The Solicitor Regulation Authority, who will use this information to advise her on the steps available to her. Unfortunately because we are not directly involved in the entry process to specific professions, we are unable to advise on the exact requirements that may be needed. but you will find that the UK NARIC “Statement of Comparability” is used alongside the original qualifications by many organisations to help make an informed decision regarding overseas awards and can be useful for both employment and further education applications.

      I hope this helps

      It is probably best if you apply for Statement of Comparability to confirm the level of the qualification in UK terms.

      Hi

      It is a bit difficult for us to be able to provide an assessment for an incomplete qualification.

Good luck.

    Please allow me to ask further questions.

    I am about to apply for a UK work permit (Tier 2 – General).

    Regarding the requirement to prove my knowledge of English, I have contacted UKVI and it said in the reply message to me that

    “You will exempt form English Language test if you have an academic
    qualification that was taught in English and is recognised by UK NARIC as
    being equivalent to a UK bachelor’s degree.”

    Please suggest what services offered by NARIC I should apply to in order to achieve this requirement, given that my master’s degree was entirely taught in English, but my bachelor’s degree was taught in Thai.

    Do I have to apply for both of the two services below?
    1. Statement of Comparability
    2. English Language Assessment
    – to confirm whether your degree has been taught solely in English and meets the required level of English language proficiency (CEFR level C1).

    For more details, my academic qualifications are summarized below.

    Bachelor’s degree (was taught in Thai) in 2001
    Department of Computer Engineering
    King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi, Thailand.

    Master’s degree (International program – was entirely taught in English) in 2008
    Department of Computer Engineering
    King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi, Thailand.

    PhD (was taught in Korean and English) in 2013
    Department of Geoinformatics
    University of Seoul, Korea.

    Thank you very much. I am looking forward to hearing from you about the services I should take.

    • UK NARIC says:

      Dear Sonhei,

      Many thanks for getting in touch.

      UK NARIC offer an English Language Assessment specifically against Bachelor level awards taught entirely in English to demonstrate proficiency to a C1 level in the CEFR framework, Unfortunately we would not be able to offer this service against your Masters & PhD awards.

      The Statement of Comparability can be used to demonstrate the academic level of your awards in the UK’s educational framework this would not confirm that your, whilst this document does not confirm that your course was taught in English, if presented alongside other evidence it may be suitable for this purpose. Please note however UK NARIC is not directly involved in the VISA application process, as such we would always recommend checking with UKVI to ensure you are providing them with the correct informations.

    • UK NARIC says:

      Good morning, The best thing to do is apply for a Statement of Comparability. It is an officially recognised document that confirms the recognition of an overseas qualification and its comparable level in the UK, irrespective of it being an academic, vocational or professional award. It is used by universities, colleges, employers and Government departments and agencies forming part of their decision-making process.

      More information about a SoC can be found on the UK NARIC website http://www.naric.org.uk/naric/individuals/Compare%20Qualifications/Statement%20of%20Comparability.aspx.

      Unfortunately we are not able to provide any information about whether you would be able to complete a medical degree in the UK as this is a decision that would need to be made by the university in question.

      I hope this helps.

      Best wishes

  137. Hi,

    I wanted to apply to the University of Oxford for their BCL program. I have a Law degree [B.A.LL.B (Honours)] from India [National Law Institute University, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh] with 69% marks.

    The selection criteria as provided on their website is:

    Proven and potential academic excellence

    Entrance is very competitive and applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class undergraduate degree (or equivalent international qualifications) in law. Equivalent qualifications may include a postgraduate diploma or master’s qualification in law.

    For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA we seek is 3.7 out of 4.0.

    If you hold non-British qualifications, you are advised to check how your qualifications match these requirements with the National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC).

    I wanted to confirm the following:
    1) Is it mandatory to obtain an SoC from Naric to apply for the said course? Or is it recommendatory/advisory, only?
    2) Do you provide an equivalent conversion of the marks obtained in the degree? For instance, what would a score of 69% in India be equivalent to in UK?
    3) How can I determine if my degree is a ‘first-class undergraduate degree in law’?
    4) I know a few recipients of the same degree as mine who have also previously been given admission in the BCL course. Does that mean that this degree would be acceptable?

    Thanks

    • UK NARIC says:

      Dear Kritika,

      A Statement of Comparability while frequently used by employers and for education is not a compulsory document nor is it binding and is an advisory document based on the research conducted by UK NARIC. While not compulsory many organisations can insist you provide this document to enable them to make an informed decision as part of their application criteria. As such you should contact the University of Oxford to clarify whether this document is required but based on the detail provided above it does suggest this will be necessary if you have a non-UK qualification.

      The service itself will only clarify the academic level of the award in terms of the UK’s educational framework and would not comment on the marks achieved. This means that whilst you will not be able to confirm if your degree is directly equivalent to a first-class undergraduate degree in law in the UKby providing the statement provided by UK NARIC to the University of Oxford they will use this and details of the marks achieved on the original award to help them make a decision. Access to a course can take into account many factors and because these procedures can be very diverse from one organisation to another we wouldn’t able to advise you if your award would give you access to a course and you should contact the University of Oxford, to better understand their requirements.

      I hope this helps.

      Dear Deniz,

      We are able to compare qualifications studied in Turkey but we are unable to comment on individual qualifications or institutions on an open forum such as this.If you wanted to obtain details of the level of this award in the UK’s Educational Framework, details on how to apply for a Statement of Comparability can be found here: http://bit.ly/XrMrXO or our information advisor’s maybe able to provide further details over the phone if you are looking for an informal assessment on +44871330 7033. Whilst not a compulsory document many employers / educational institutions use this type of document to help make an informed decision when considering applications from individuals with overseas awards.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you for your enquiry, whilst UK NARIC can assist you in obtaining a formal comparison of your overseas qualifications to the UK’s educational framework, unfortunately we are not in a position to advise on what jobs you would be able to apply for in the UK. You may be able to obtain assistance from careers services in your area.

    Hi,

    I have masters degree of Statistics from pakistan.
    I want to study further in UK.
    I need some information and help what to do next.
    Can you give me any telephone number or email address to get full information i require.

    Many thanks,

    • UK NARIC says:

      Hi the best thing to do is apply for a Statement of Comparability; this will confirm the level of your qualification in UK terms.

      If you want to study for an undergraduate qualification you will need to apply through UCAS (www.ucas.com).

      If you want to study for a postgraduate qualification you should contact the institutions directly; you could use the UCAS course search to work out which universities offer the courses which are of interest to you.

      Good luck

      UK NARIC
