Recognition of higher education acquired at foreign higher educational institutions

Academic recognition is a formal written confirmation of the value of a higher education diploma or another similar qualification, 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 Recognition procedure is intended to help graduates of foreign higher education institutions who are willing to continue their education or to start work in Bulgaria.

The e-services portal and the unified information system facilitate the submission of documents and online tracking of the procedure.

We provide information on inquiries from citizens and institutions about the academic status of foreign higher education institutions and the legitimacy of diplomas issued by them, the level and nature of different degrees and other topical issues.
