Denmark: Annual report on recognition

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

In Denmark, demand for assessments of foreign qualifications has been stable in recent years, even in 2020 as a whole, despite a dip at the beginning of the corona pandemic. The Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science (DK-ENIC/NARIC) delivered 3,887 assessments during 2020.

That is one of the figures given in the annual report that the Minister for Education and Science has just sent to the Danish parliament, Folketinget.

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.

The Nordic Council of Ministers has donated money to hold a Nordic seminar on automatic recognition and digitalisation, where the possible implementation of the recommendations of the reports will be further developed and discussed. The seminar is postponed due to the corona crisis.

Furthermore, as an outcome of the report an update of the Reykjavik Declaration dealing with mutual recognition in the Nordic region will be launched soon. Focus will be on integrating automatic recognition in the text of the declaration.
