NARIC Ireland offers advice on the academic recognition of foreign qualifications in Ireland,  by comparing it, where possible, to a major award at a particular level on the Irish National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ)

The comparability information provided is advisory in nature based on the understanding that the qualification is awarded by a nationally recognised awarding body (ies) in the country of origin.
