Recognition of foreign qualifications in Scotland

Hello everyone,

Were your professional qualifications recognised in Scotland? What country did you complete your qualifications in? What profession are you in?

Did you have to go through any formalities to get your qualifications recognised, such as to have them translated?

If your qualifications weren't recognised, were there any additional tests or exams you had to complete before you were able to practice your profession in Scotland or continue with your studies?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.


Yes I was able to use my qualifications without changing I.e financial
I have since changed field to health and social care and am doing NVQ 5 Leadership and Management with entrance qualifications being those I had from Zimbabwe
I hope this will be helpful

Kind Regards


Hi, I'm a Chartered Accountant and as I'm from Australia, they recognised the qualification, no translation needed. Cheers, Es
