Third States


At the request of recognition bodies in non-EU/EFTA states, SERI will certify that a Swiss upper-secondary level vocational qualification (eidg. Berufsattest or an eidg. Fähigkeitszeugnis), a Swiss tertiary-level professional qualification (eidg. Fachausweis (Berufsprüfung), (eidg. Diplom höherer Fachprüfung), (Diplom einer höheren Fachschule), or a Swiss higher education qualification (Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree) are state-issued or state-recognised qualifications.

In addition, SERI can also reference Swiss qualifications to the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED). ISCED certificates are available in German, French, Italian or English. Unfortunately, SERI does not provide translation of qualifications awarded in Switzerland. Please contact a translator for this purpose (www.astti).
