Working conditions in Estonia

Working in Europe | Intellectual Property Rights, Recognition of diplomas, Research Landscape | Estonia

On principle, official recognition of a foreign diploma or degree is sought only for admission to further studies. Some applicants, however, choose to receive a statement of academic recognition before seeking employment. This kind of recognition (academic recognition for professional purposes) helps employers to understand which home country’s qualification can be compared to the foreign one – for example, whether a candidate fulfills the conditions to be employed as a professor.

The Estonian ENIC/NARIC evaluates foreign qualifications and determines the Estonian correspondence to the attested qualifications for commencing or continuing studies in Estonian higher education institutions or employment in non-regulated professions. An applicant for the evaluation of foreign qualifications may be the holder of the qualification as well as an employer, higher education institution or another institution where the education document has been presented. An evaluation determines the correspondence of foreign qualifications to qualifications within the Estonian education system and a proposal is made for the recognition of these qualifications to a higher education establishment or employer.
