How do I proceed to have my foreign diploma recognised?
- Check with the list below or check on this website if your profession is regulated: www.sbfi.admin.ch/agencies-responsible
- If your profession is included in the list, respectively if it is regulated:
Check on the list or on the website which authority in Switzerland is responsible for the recognition of your diploma and contact them directly.
If your profession is not on the list, or if it is not regulated: you have access to the labour market without recognition of the qualification acquired abroad. The decision to hire you rests solely with the employer according to its needs and requirements. However, you can also apply for a level certification from SERI (vocational education and training) or swissuniversities (higher education) depending on the type of diploma you hold.
If you are in doubt as to whether or not the profession you wish to practise is regulated, send an email with a scan of your degree to firstname.lastname@example.org
