Recognition of higher education acquired at foreign higher educational institutions:
“Doctor”, “Doctor of Sciences”


The normative period for processing the application and making a recognition decision is up to 2 months from the date of submission of all necessary documents.

In cases where no additional documents are required, the period is about one month.

In cases where there are vague circumstances, additional information and/or documents are required from the applicant. They must be submitted within the set deadline (usually two months) from the date of notification.

If necessary, a request for additional verification and information may be sent to the higher education institution/scientific organization which had issued the diploma or to the competent authorities of the country of origin of the degree.

Some foreign higher education institutions/research organizations explicitly require your consent for NACID’s verifications. In such cases, your assistance is obligatory. Our experts at the Center for Administrative Services (CAO) will advise you when submitting the application.
