Recognition of degrees and professional qualifications in Iceland
Evaluation of academic studies
The NARIC/ENIC office in Iceland handles evaluation of academic education. It operates within the University of Iceland but serves all Icelandic tertiary-level institutions.
The office does not make decisions on assessment of qualifications, but only provides guidelines and advice. The office's tasks include providing opinions on assessing degrees based on the assessment methods of the NARIC and ENIC network and providing information on degrees, education systems and assessment processes to individuals, universities and other stakeholders.
Assessment of professional qualifications
Appraisal of professional qualifications is conducted by the ministries responsible for the sector under the supervision of the Ministry of Education and Children. The Ministry of Health, for instance, is responsible for accrediting practitioners within the health sector, and the Ministry of Industry for the accreditation of workers in industrial trades.
