Have your diploma recognized

If you have completed your training in another country, you can have the «value» of your diploma checked in Switzerland. There are various recognition offices for foreign qualifications and professions. The recognition procedure differs depending on whether your profession is regulated or not:

If you would like to practice a regulated profession, recognition (i.e. issuing of equivalence) is required. For a list of regulated professions see:

If you would like to practice a non-regulated profession, you do not need to have your foreign diploma recognized. In this case, the diploma gives you direct access to the job market. However, the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SBFI) recommends that you obtain confirmation of your level. Such a confirmation classifies the foreign diploma in the Swiss education system.
