Apply for certificate assessment of foreign higher education qualifications for recognition in the higher education sector

Description

A certificate assessment is an official document of the Central Office for Foreign Education (ZAB).

The assessment of the certificate is issued in the form of a certificate. You will receive this certificate in a short version and a long version. It mentions the level of the German educational qualification with which your foreign degree is comparable.

At the same time, it also informs you about the possibilities you have for continuing your studies.

The ZAB only issues a certificate for completed higher education.

 

The certificate evaluation is only a comparative classification. It does not replace recognition.

With the ZAB certificate, you can prove to the university that you have a university degree. Ultimately, however, the university decides whether you will be admitted to study.

You submit a written application to the ZAB. This will then send you a fee notice by e-mail.

Once you have paid the fee, your application will be processed.

You will receive a certificate from ZAB. This certificate shall contain a summary and a long version. You can attach the short version to your application documents. You can use the long version when you need extensive information.

Contact ZAB.
