6.1. Issuance of Certificate for recognized higher education
The academic recognition is a formal written confirmation of the value of a higher education diploma or of another equivalent document issued by an educational institution recognized by a competent state authority as part of the system of secular higher education of the country concerned. The positive recognition decision of NACID represents a certificate, containing the following data:
- Applicant's name, ID number, date and place of birth, citizenship;
- The recognized educational qualification degree and the respective recognised specialty/major;
- The name of the foreign higher education institution and the name of the country where the higher education had been completed;
- The degree and specialty, originally awarded by the foreign higher education institution.
The Certificate for Recognition of acquired higher education applies only to the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria and does not confer to its holder any rights which may be used in relations with third parties.
The Certificate does not grant access to professions for the exercise of which there are special requirements determined by law or by other normative act. For the regulated professions in Bulgaria read more in Section 2. Which are the competent recognition authorities?, step 2.3.
The certificate has specific protective features against counterfeiting.
