Validation and recognition

The Swedish education provider is responsible for validation and recognition of qualifications, exams and courses obtained and completed abroad by pupils in preschool, compulsory school or upper secondary school. Validation and recognition is part of the regular assessment of pupils' learning, based on goals and criteria in curricula and course syllabies. Some upper secondary education providers use internationally recognised validation tools, such as Europass and ECVET, as a complement.
