Partnership with UK NARIC

As part of our continued commitment to offering you a high quality service and value from your membership, we recently announced our new partnership with UK NARIC.  This partnership allows us to grant free membership to the UK NARIC Premium service for all our members – meaning you can access all of their international databases, helping you to make accurate judgments about eligibility for funding and entry criteria.

We hope that this is a service you will find to be of great benefit.  The Premium Package for full access to the international databases would usually cost £7,500 (plus VAT) – with European Comparison packages offering the same level of support starting at £3,200 (plus VAT).

As part of your new service, you will have full access to the following five databases:

  • International Comparisons (IC) covers academic, vocational and professional qualifications from 200 countries, former countries and territories around the world.
  • International Grade Comparisons (IGC) supplements IC with grade distributions and grade profiles from over 65 key feeder countries, mapped to UK comparator qualifications, so you can identify the best applicants and candidates.
  • International Secondary Qualifications extends the secondary education coverage beyond Europe, to over 75 countries worldwide.
  • Vocational Comparisons details vocational education and training qualifications across 50 countries.
  • Teaching Comparisons.

One of the most useful elements for you as providers is likely to be the International Grade Comparison which gives proof of classifications with an auditable trail.

You are also be entitled to:

  • 48 hour response times for individual enquiries
  • Regular newsletters from UK NARIC
  • Access to the UK NARIC Certificate Bank to help with the detection of fraud
  • Multiple log-ins per provider (if required)

Access to the new service is available immediately.  To register for the service, please complete the Google Form here (please complete a separate form per log-in required).  Please allow five working days for us to process your application.

As part of our offer to members, we will be seeking ‘NARIC Champions’ from amongst the membership who will be able to take advantage of additional NARIC training and development opportunities in order that they can support other members with the service.  If you think you may be interested in becoming a Champion, please do let us know.
