Nostrification in brief



Foreign documents on education, when brought to the Russian Federation, should undergo the procedure of recognition (nostrification) for their further use.

Nostrification of foreign documents on education is a standardized form of legalization of educational qualifications acquired abroad, in the Russian Federation.

A distinction is made between academic and professional recognition of foreign educational qualifications.

Academic recognition enables the holder of the foreign qualifications to continue the education in the Russian Federation at an educational institution of the appropriate level.

Professional recognition* enables the holder of the foreign qualifications to pursue professional activities in the Russian Federation.

*With the exception of foreign medical and pharmaceutical qualifications. According to the order of the Government of the Russian Federation N 119 of February 7, 1995 "On the procedure of admission of persons who have acquired qualifications in medicine and pharmacy abroad to medical and pharmaceutical practice in the Russian Federation" (in revision of the Government of the Russian Federation N 49 of February 1, 2005), Roszdravnadzor is in charge of admitting holders of foreign medical and pharmaceutical qualifications to practice.

Same is true for the high school qualifications.

In this case, the applicant receives a document certifying the recognition and equivalence of the educational qualifications.
The decision on recognition and equivalence of educational qualifications is made by the Federal Education and Science Supervision Service (Rosobrnadzor)

The technical and organizational assistance to the Rosobrnadzor in exercising its mandate is provided by the Federal State Scientific Institution FGNU Glavekspertzentr.

Currently, the Russian Federation has treaties on the mutual recognition of educational qualifications with all former Soviet republics except Uzbekistan.

On a yearly basis, Rosobrnadzor publishes a newsletter (in Russian!) with the list of states with which the Russian Federation has signed treaties on the mutual recognition of secondary school certificates. The holders of the relevant documents issued in these states don't have to undergo the recognition procedure and submit original documents with their certified translations into Russian to the admission commissions of the educational institutions.
