Evaluation of foreign diplomas
Nuffic is the central point of contact in the Netherlands for the evaluation of foreign diplomas.
We issue approximately 30,000 written evaluations each year, mostly from Dutch higher education institutions.
Evaluation advice to institutions
The institution makes the final decision, taking into account specific requirements for admission to their study programmes. This means that the final decision may not be completely in line with the initial evaluation by Nuffic.
Individual foreign credential evaluations
Nuffic Certificates for Chinese students
We also issue Nuffic Certificates to Chinese students, after a positive verification of their English proficiency exam and educational background. We receive about 5,000 requests for such certificates each year.
