IDW (international degree evaluation)

International Diploma Valuation (IDW) allows refugees from Ukraine to apply for one free diploma valuation. The diploma valuation is in Dutch and digitally signed. You don't have to pay any costs for this service. On the website of the IDW you will find an explanation of what steps you need to take.

Your diploma in the Netherlands

Do you want to know what your Ukrainian diploma is worth in The Netherlands? Due to the differences in the educational systems of Ukraine and the Netherlands, it is possible that your Ukrainian diploma is not equivalent to a comparable Dutch diploma. On the website of Nuffic (only in Dutch), you can compare your diploma with diplomas in the Netherlands. This is handy, because many studies and jobs require a diploma of a certain level. This way you can quickly see whether you are at that level.
