The ENIC network (European Network of Information Centres) is made up of national information centres. The role of these centres is to provide information and advice on:
- the recognition of foreign diplomas, degrees and other academic or professional qualifications;
- education systems in other European countries and one's own country;
- opportunities for studying abroad, including information on loans and scholarships, as well as on practical questions related to mobility and equivalence.
The NARIC network (National Academic Recognition Information Centres) was created in 1984. The network aims at improving academic recognition of diplomas and periods of study in the Member States of the European Union, the European Economic Area and Central and Eastern European countries.
