In order for your future employer to have an idea of how your foreign qualifications compare to the Swedish system, you can have them assessed by UHR or a Swedish public authority. This document will help you when looking for a job position.
You can start this process while your case is being evaluated; you do not need to have a resident permit to have your qualifications reviewed.
Who should I contact?
UHR will assess your upper secondary school (high school) and university qualifications and provide you with a document on how they compare to Swedish studies. If you have a professional foreign degree, you can have that evaluated with the Swedish public authority with responsibility for that profession. Please follow the links below to find out more:
