Basics recognition and educational qualification counselling

You want to work in Germany? You have a foreign professional qualification?

All people with a foreign professional qualification are entitled to initiate a recognition procedure of their foreign qualification – regardless of their nationality and resident status.

You need advice?

Please get in contact with one of our responsible consultants. This is where you will find the right contact person.

The recognition of your profession or education is a process in which your qualification will be compared with a similar German qualification. This is done through a legally regulated procedure which, if successful, will end in your qualification being recognised as equivalent.

Should your qualification not get recognised as equivalent, you will have the chance to obtain full equivalence by attending bridge training. This will improve your chances at the German labour market. For certain professions in Germany you are required to obtain recognition for your qualifications.

The counselling centres:

  • will help you in finding out if a recognition of your qualification is really needed.
  • will help you in finding the responsible authority for your professional or educational qualification.
  • will give you advice about training options when your qualification has not or only been partially recognised.

Consultation is free and confidential.
