The European Qualifications Passport for Refugees is a document providing an assessment of the higher education qualifications based on available documentation and a structured interview. It also presents information on the applicant’s work experience and language proficiency. The document provides reliable information for integration and progression towards employment and admission to further studies.
It is a specially developed assessment scheme for refugees, even for those who cannot fully document their qualifications.
Partners include the Greek Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs and qualification recognition centres in Greece, Italy, Norway and the UK. The UNHCR Office in Greece also supports the project.
