NARIC statements

The Portuguese NARIC centre issues statements with the following objectives:

  • Attest the level of a foreign academic qualification for the purpose of equivalence/recognition, or further studies in Portuguese higher education institutions;
  • Attest the level of a foreign academic qualification for IRS – fiscal purposes;
  • Describe the Portuguese higher education grading system.

NOTE: The statement attesting the level of a foreign academic qualification only confirms the level of the course. It does not replace the certificate of equivalence/recognition conferred by a Portuguese higher education institution, or any other form of academic degree recognition foreseen in the legislation.
