The European Agency For Higher Education and Accreditation (EAHEA) is interested in assisting individuals to validate their specializations, validate their certificates and recognize earned credits on an international scale. To this end we have prepared a certificate validation procedure that will certify the credit and specialization equivalency of any certification earned at any of the EAHEA accredited institutions. This certificate validation document will also endorse the external quality review of the specialization, institution and program of study.

Note that accreditation is a voluntary and non governmental process. No accreditation in the world can provide automatic acceptance and degree validation of the credits earned at other institutions, nor does it guarantee the acceptance of graduates by employers. Acceptance of students or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer.
