To qualify for an employment in the UK, all foreign workers are required by law to have the right skills, qualifications and experience to function in the capacity in which they have applied.
This is even more so in specialized jobs like teaching, accounting, and other top professional jobs. UK NARIC should be the first point of call for anyone who holds a foreign qualification and wants to use such for work or study. It is a shame that some very qualified individuals come over to the UK, and are unable to get into job roles they are suited for because of been unable to demonstrate the equivalence of their overseas qualifications.
Teir 2 (formerly HSMP) visa applicants are increasingly required to show proof that their overseas qualifications would be acceptable here. You can now do so by contacting the UKNARIC.
To compare your foreign qualifications, you need to send an application to the United Kingdom National Recognition Information Centre.
They are based in Cheltenham UK. For a small fee they will do the verification in a short time. You can contact hem by post or online.
You will need to provide the following if you chose to apply to Uk naric by post:
If you are from any of the following countries, you do not need to send translated copies, as there is a waiver provision. Just send photocopies of your original qualifications.
