Services for individuals

Do you want to study or work in the UK? UK NARIC can help you.

Do you need an official document that states how your international qualifications compare to UK qualifications? If so, request a Statement of Comparability.

You may need proof of your English language ability for work or study purposes. If so, request an English Language Assessment document.

There are occupation-specific entry requirements and processes for a number of regulated trades and professions in the UK. UK NARIC provides services and documents to support these. (At the moment, we support entry to: teaching; early years sector; electrician and electrotechnical; construction trades.)

You can apply online for any of these UK NARIC services, and upload your certificates to our website. You can track your enquiry and your order online on our UK NARIC User Portal. You can register with us now.

On the Statement of Comparability, for an extra £30.00 + VAT* (£36.00), you can request the Translation Waiver Service – this saves you the need for a translation. This is not a free service: it is an upgrade which is chargeable.

Note – we do NOT provide you with a translation of your certificates as part of this service. This service is designed to give you a Statement of Comparability in English without needing a separate certified translation of your certificates.

We can read qualifications in Arabic, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Danish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Macedonian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish. This means you do not need to give us an English translation of your certificate. For qualifications in other languages, we do need to see a certified English translation.

  2. Order a Statement of Comparability for your Romanian degree - do not provide us with a translation; order the Translation Waiver Service upgrade - price is £79.50 + delivery + VAT*.
