Obtaining an equivalency certificate is essential to ensure that the UAE Ministry of Education endorses your qualification. This process is also used to verify that your institution is fully accredited by the government.

If you require certificate equivalency, you must follow the required procedure and get your documents attested on time.

It’s important to note that failing to apply for certificate equivalency will prevent you from continuing higher education or applying for a job. This process is essential for candidates who have completed their studies from outside the UAE.

Here’s a look at the documents that are required for the application process:

Required Documents for Intermediate Diploma and Bachelor Degrees

  1. An attested copy of the qualification
  2. A copy of the transcript
  3. An original embassy letter verifying the authenticity of the qualification
  4. Translation of the certification if it isn’t in English or Arabic
  5. An attested copy of the high school certificate
  6. Proof of attendance in the country of study (passport and proof of residence)
