Degree Validation Document (For Institutes, Individuals)
Graduates from the European Agency For Higher Education and Accreditation accredited institutions or from institutions of education holding an equivalent accreditation (approved by the EAHEA) may ensure and demonstrate that their education diploma, earned credits, and awarding institution are considered to be bona fide and accredited according to the European Agency For Higher Education and Accreditation standards by requesting an EAHEA Degree Validation Diploma. The EAHEA Degree Validation Diploma also specifies the total credits earned and their equivalency in US Semester Credits and European ECTS credits.
What Is The Degree Validation Document From EAHEA?
The European Agency For Higher Education and Accreditation (EAHEA) is interested in assisting individuals to validate their degrees, validate their diplomas and recognize earned credits on an international scale. To this end we have prepared a degree validation procedure that will certify the credit and degree equivalency of any diploma or certification earned at any of the EAHEA accredited institutions. This degree validation document will also endorse the external quality review of the degree, institution and program of study.
The European Agency For Higher Education and Accreditation considers this degree validation document service to be an important and constructive process to facilitate the acceptance of the degrees and credits earned from our accredited institutions.
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.
What Are The Benefits Of The Degree Validation Document?
You will receive an international degree validation document issued by the European Agency For Higher Education and Accreditation that will state the following information:
- Your full name
- Verification of the diploma and specialization earned
- Verification of the total credits corresponding to this diploma and specialization
- Verification of the credits composition in hours of study
- Certification of the credits equivalency to the US Semester credits system
- Certification of the credits equivalency to the Europe
- Assurance that the awarding institution is meeting the EAHEA education quality standards
The EAHEA diploma validation may be useful for the global acceptance of the degrees and credits by employers, professional associations, other institutions, colleges or universities.
