Equivalency of University Degrees

In order to verify the validity and integrity of certificates and degrees that have been issued by institutions abroad, the Ministry of Education and Higher Education has established an equivalency system. Under this system, the Ministry considers equivalency applications and issues decisions after verifying the legitimacy of the degree or certificate.

All students working and living in Qatar with certificates or degrees from higher education institutions abroad should apply for an equivalency certificate.

The Ministry will also issue prior approval for those who wish to pursue higher education options abroad at their own expense or at the expense of their employer.

Equivalency is particularly important for graduates seeking employment as well as for employers wanting to hire them.

The equivalency certification ensures that those hired have met the required academic standards and that their degrees are from a legitimate institution.
