>> Legal Framework of Recognition in the Russian Federation | Recognition of foreign qualifications

The Federal Service for Supervision in Education and Science is the governmental agency responsible for recognition procedure throughout the country. It is the only national body empowered to take decisions on recognition of qualifications/degrees both in academic and professional purposes, with the exception of research/scientific degrees. Technically this function implements its subordinate organization "Glaveksperttsentr", which is the National Information Center of the Russian Federation and entitled to provide information on recognition matters.

In addition to these federal institutions leading universities are authorized to make recognition in order to provide the right for applicants with foreign qualifications to continue their study or obtain employment in these universities.

The National Information Center on Academic Recognition and Mobility is responsible for provision of information on Russian education and qualifications, especially in cases when such information is necessary for the competent recognition authorities, organizations and individuals abroad.
