Recognition of qualifications

There are no uniform rules in Austria for formal recognition of qualifications from abroad. The respective procedures are regulated in numerous federal and provincial laws.

The procedure applied for recognising qualifications (degrees) from abroad depends on the area for which the qualification is needed. A distinction is made between recognition of professional qualifications, the recognition of school and skilled trade certificates as well as the recognition of academic degrees.
