Automatic Recognition of Qualifications

Automatic Recognition of Qualifications

If you practice one of the professions listed below and have completed recognised basic training in the EU, you may be able to obtain automatic recognition of your qualifications.

Certain regulated professions have harmonisation of basic training in all Member States. This means each Member State's professional qualification is recognised by all and allows for automatic recognition of the qualification.

Only qualifications obtained in a Member State and listed in Directive 2005/36/EC are eligible for automatic recognition. If you intend to practice in any of these professions in the UK you must apply for recognition of your qualification from the appropriate competent authority.

Automatic recognition applies to the following professions:

Dental Practitioner General Dental Council
Doctor and General Practitioner General Medical Council
Midwife Nursing and Midwifery Council
