Education in Russia /
Admission and teaching of overseas students in educational establishments of Russia /
Recognition and equivalence of documents of education and scientific degrees /
The guidelines put forward both for the recognition of foreign qualifications in the Russian Federation and of Russian qualifications in the other European countries are based on the idea that an educational qualification giving access to educational programmes of a certain level in the home country should also give access to educational programmes of a comparable level in the host country.
In addition, the guidelines take into account the concept of "recognition unless substantial differences can be demonstrated" in conformity with the Joint Council of Europe/UNESCO Draft Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications Concerning Higher Education in the Europe Region, to be adopted in 1997. In case of such substantial differences, the solution should be sought on the basis of bilateral agreements or on an individual basis.
The degrees awarded in the Russian Federation during the previous educational system (before 1991) in some disciplines, such as history, law, economics, philosophy, and social sciences may be analyzed in order to determine whether or not recognition is justified.
