DK-ENIC/NARIC publishes annual report on assessment and recognition of foreign qualifications.

2019 saw a small increase in the total number of assessments from the Danish ENIC/NARIC office in spite of a drop in refugee numbers.

The Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education (Danish ENIC/NARIC office) made a total of 3,898 assessments of foreign qualifications of various kinds, up 4 % from the previous year. This includes 2,600 ordinary assessments, i.e. a document that the qualification holder can use when looking for a job etc.

The average case processing time for an ordinary assessment in 2019 was 34 calendar days.

The annual report provides statistics and describes developments in the field of recognition including the various services offered by the ENIC/NARIC office as well as credit transfer appeals and professional recognition for access to regulated professions.
