1. Log in
    To apply for an assessment, start by logging in with your eID

    If you don’t have an eID, that’s no problem. You can submit your application using your email address and you don´t need a Swedish personal identity number to apply. The only difference is you won’t be able to save your application and continue with it later. Start by clicking ‘I want to apply without logging in’.

    When you write your birth date or Swedish personal identity number, do not write 19 (or 20) in the beginning. For example: 880411-xxxx

  2. Personal data and contact information
    First, provide your personal data and contact information.

    In this step, you may need to provide supporting documentation in order to document your right to apply for an evaluation (either you log in with eID or upload for example a population registration certificate (personbevis)) or if you’ve changed your name. Always scan your documents in PDF format. Find out more about what documents may be required.

  3. Save or continue to Step 2
    If you’ve logged in using eID, you can save your application at any time and continue later, if you’d like.

    Otherwise, continue to Step 2 – My Qualifications

  4. Select country and education level
    After you’ve entered your country of study and education level, you’ll be presented with a form where you provide information about your qualification.

  5. Education documents
    Under the heading ’Education documents’ you can see what documents you need to submit for your country of study and your qualification.

  6. Adding your qualification
    Click on ’Add this qualification’, to place the education under ’My qualifications’. If you have another qualification you’d like assessed – for example if you have an upper secondary diploma AND a higher education degree – you should fill in the form for each and add both of them.

  7. Review and submit
    When you’re finished adding your qualifications, click on ’Step 3 – Review and Submit’ to check the information you’ve provided and submit your application.

  8. Certification
    In order to submit your application, you must certify that you’ve submitted correct, true information.

    It is UHR’s policy to file a report with the police if it’s discovered that a document has been falsified.

After you’ve submitted your application

  1. Confirmation email
    After you’ve submitted your application, you’ll receive a confirmation email to your email address. It will include an attached letter with additional information and your application number. Save this email.

  2. Additional information may be required
    During the assessment process, UHR may find that you need to submit additional documents. If this is the case, you’ll receive an email requesting that you log in to ‘My pages’ and find out what documents are required.

  3. Follow your application
    On ’My pages’, you can follow the steps that are taken in the processing of your case. It will take between 2 and 5 months for you to receive a recognition statement.

  4. Digital recognition statement
    If UHR can recognise your qualification, we’ll send a digital recognition statement to your email address. Find out more about the recognition statement.
