The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a highly competitive and dynamic environment which demands a widely recognised academic background for anyone seeking employment, extending their education, or planning to obtain the Golden Visa. Thus, to avail these possibilities, it is required to verify and validate academic credentials with the Ministry of Education (MoE), the UAE’s official educational regulatory organisation.

This authentication procedure comprises acquiring a Certificate of Recognition, also known as an Equivalency Certificate, which proves the authenticity and equivalency of your foreign academic credentials within the UAE education system.

What is a Degree Equivalency Certificate?

A Degree Equivalency Certificate is a document to confirm a degree earned outside the UAE is comparable to a degree awarded within the UAE educational system. This is done to assess whether your foreign degree meets the academic standards set by the UAE.

Who Needs an Equivalency Certificate In The UAE?

Anyone having an academic qualification, from secondary school to doctorate level, can earn this certificate. However, it is frequently required for a variety of activities in the UAE, including:

  • Employment (required for some positions in healthcare, education, engineering, and government)
  • Individuals pursuing Higher Education
  • Applying for a Society of Engineers License in Dubai Card
  • Applying for the UAE Golden Visa

Steps To Receive The Degree Equivalency Certificate

Gatestone Group will assist you in the following steps:

Step 1: Collect the necessary documents
Before beginning the MoE equivalency application, Gatestone Group will guide and assist you on the relevant documents required for the application, such as educational transcripts, degree or certifications, and a valid passport.

Step 2: Get your degree verified
Before applying for an equivalency certificate, you must first verify your degree from the country where the degree is issued. This is separate from the embassy attestation in the UAE.

Gatestone Group also assists in authenticating degrees and handling additional documentation required by the MoE based on your specialisation and degree level, such as an abstract letter, research paper, and proof of residency.

Step 3: Completing Your MoE Application

After receiving the verification report, Gatestone Group will handle all the processes for obtaining your Certificate of Recognition. We will ensure that your application form is accurate, and the details match the information on your supporting documents.

Step 4: Obtaining the Certificate of Equivalency

Once the application at MoE is approved, your digitally attested certificate will be issued within two days. Gatestone Group will handle this entire process on your behalf, ensuring that you receive your Certificate of Equivalency promptly.
