Recognition of old diplomas

On 2nd March 2012, the Cabinet of Ministers Regulations No.142 "Procedure on referencing degrees and professional qualifications " came in force. These Regulations stipulate procedure how degrees and professional qualifications (higher education level), which have been obtained in Latvia after graduating from a study programme, which implementation had been started before December 26, 2000 (when present degree and professional qualification regulations came in force) are referenced to the degrees and professional qualifications stated in the Law on Higher Education Institutions (1995). The Regulations refer to the degrees and professional qualifications issued both during the Soviet times and in the independent Latvia during 1990ties.

According to the Regulations, the decision about referencing previously obtained degrees and qualifications is taken by the Academic Information Centre.
