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.  

How does NARIC Ireland operate?  

  • Visit NARIC Ireland -

  • Search by your home country (for example Australia, Poland, UK)

  • If your academic qualification is listed, you can download or print the comparability statement for your qualification

  • If your academic qualification is not listed please fill in the form available here  

See our NARIC Guide (GA/ ES/ PT/ FR/ PLCHI / RU / ARA / UA ) for more information on how to use the database and understand the comparability statements available.
