Equivalency Certificate

Equivalency certification is the process by which, the ministry of education in the UAE attests that a degree that has been awarded by any of the institute outside the UAE, meets the country’s education criteria as well as international academic standards. A candidate, who has completed his/her studies from school/college, which is outside the UAE must present a certificate of Equivalency for some of the professional job categories like Professors, Doctors, Banking staffs etc., and also, candidates those who are looking forward to enroll for higher studies in the UAE should also submit an equivalency certificate.
