A fair recognition and admission process

UCLL guarantees a fair screening of your application.

Screening process
  • Our guidelines for the recognition of your credentials is governed by the Lisbon Recognition Convention if the country where the degree/diploma/certificate was issued, has ratified the Convention. 
  • Students must hold a diploma/degree/certificate that  provides access  to higher education in the country where it was issued, similar to the education level that you apply for at UCLL.

In addition, we mainly use the Ecctis and Nuffic databases to assess candidates' diplomas/degrees.
