Summary: 

Norwegian ENIC-NARIC Centre offers alternative educational assessments for those missing documentation. 

In accordance with the Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning Higher Education in the European Region (the Lisbon Recognition Convention), section VII, the Norwegian ENIC-NARIC office, NOKUT, has developed a procedure for formal recognition of higher education qualifications for persons without verifiable documentation.

This procedure is intended for refugees with insufficient documentation and individuals in a refugee-like situation who are unable to fulfill the documentation requirements for NOKUTs regular procedure for General Recognition. It is called the Recognition Procedure for Persons without Verifiable Documentation (the UVD-procedure).
