English qualifications in Switzerland

Hi All
Has anyone been through the process of getting their qualifications recognised in Switzerland
I currently have Engineering qualifications (HNC, & OND) and was wondering what the Swiss equivalents were and whether its worth getting them recognised in Switzerland.
many thanks for any help

Re: English qualifications in Switzerland

You'll need a formal recognition only for jobs that require specific diplomas/degrees/qualifications here (so called "Reglemented jobs").
The cantons are responsible for that.

If you want to study, it's up to the institution to recognise your qualifications; same applies for the job market.

If you want/need to know the value of your qualifications here, you can choose between:

- an attestation of the level of your qualifications, or
- a recognition of your diploma (longer process and a bit more expensive).

More infos here:


good luck!
