General information about some foreign systems of education is available in the diagrams that the Finnish National Agency for Education has published for guidance purposes. They help guidance and student admission practitioners assess the level of a foreign qualification. The diagrams include the title of the qualification or education in the original language and English translation used in the country of origin.

International sources of information
On the internet, there are many useful sources of information about systems of education and educational certificates in different countries. When searching for information about foreign systems of education and certificates, it is recommended that you use information given on the web pages of national authorities and the institution awarding the qualification as your primary source of information.
The ENIC-NARIC network has a website for sharing information to support recognition of qualifications, and on the enic-naric.net you will find links to national sources of information. Through this website you have access to reliable information, especially on higher education qualifications, in for example the European countries, Australia, Canada and the United States.
In the following we have gathered also some other web sites of our foreign partner organisations that we use in our own work too. Some of these sites require registration.
