Denmark: Database of recognised higher education institutions

The Danish ENIC/NARIC office has set up a database of Danish recognised higher education institutions.

The database includes existing institutions and institutions that have existed as recognised higher education institutions in the period 2000 to the present.

The database is located at the website of the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science:

Background

The database aims to make it easier for recognition authorities in other countries to obtain information about the status of both existing and former Danish higher education institutions. In so doing, the database is intended to facilitate assessment and recognition of Danish higher education qualifications abroad in accordance with Article VIII.2 of the Lisbon Recognition Convention:

"Each Party shall make adequate provisions for the development, maintenance and provision of […] a list of recognized institutions (public and private) belonging to its higher education system, indicating their powers to award different types of qualifications and the requirements for gaining access to each type of institution and programme […]”

Previously, only lists of current HEIs were available. This was considered insufficient in the context of international qualification assessment and recognition: Many changes have occurred in the Danish institutional landscape over the years, including mergers and name changes. Consequently, it may be difficult to find information about the educational institution that issued a diploma some years ago.
