International credential evaluation

 

Although the school has substantial understanding of the values and equivalence of a great number of diplomas issued from universities around the globe, it is not possible for us to judge the credentials of all universities and diplomas worldwide.


If the equivalence of your diploma is not clear to us, we will ask you to provide an international credential evaluation statement issued by the centre(s) of expertise for international credential evaluation.
A credential evaluation is a written statement which indicates how foreign diplomas and study programmes are evaluated in the Netherlands. There are two centres that issue this validation: SBB and Nuffic. They will issue written statements supporting the credential evaluation of your diploma.


The Information Centre for Credential Evaluation (IDW) acts as a central desk you can contact by phone or e-mail for questions, and where applications for credential evaluation can be submitted by post. If an official credential evaluation is necessary for your diploma, we will inform you as soon as possible. Please read the instructions for requesting a credential evaluation very carefully in order to avoid unnecessary costs and disappointment.

 

Please note the processing time as stated on the IDW website and make sure that you submit your request for the credential evaluation on time. Once the IDW has received your payment, the file is complete and all required documents have been submitted, the processing procedure will begin. The statements above are only advisory, and no rights can be derived from them. The university and the centres of expertise cannot be held liable for any damages resulting from decisions by third parties on the basis of a credential evaluation.

 

The credential evaluation statement must be sent together with the rest of the application requirements to the MHPE office via e-mail at mhpe@maastrichtuniversity.nl before 16 March 2018. Without a credential evaluation statement your application will be considered incomplete and will therefore not be reviewed by the Board of Admissions. Please note that the statement is issued only in the Dutch language.
