Recognition of a range of academic qualifications, including qualifications for access to higher education, is covered by the Council of Europe/UNESCO Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning Higher Education in the European Region, to which most countries in the European Region, including the UK, are signatories.

The UK National Recognition Advice Centre (UK NARIC) provides, on behalf of the government, advice on the comparability of international qualifications with those of the UK. UK NARIC is a member of the European network of national information centres that act as a primary contact point for the recognition of international academic qualifications.
