Students from EU Countries

General Information

Candidates who graduated high-school or a Bachelor/Master study programme in a European Union country, other than Romania, must have their study diplomas recognized and validated by the Romanian National Centre for the Recognition and Validation of Diplomas (CNRED), part of the Romanian Ministry of Education. According to the national Law 316/ 12.07.2006, citizens from member states of the European Union, European Economic Area and Swiss Confederation, have the right to apply to studies in Romania, in the same financial circumstances as Romanian citizens.

CNRED acknowledges, within a period of 30 working days, the study documents that certify the completion of baccalaureate-level studies. This period may be extended accordingly in the case of conducting additional verifications.

The procedure for the validation and equivalence of diplomas is done by the candidate, by submitting the necessary files directly to CNRED. After receiving the Certificate for the Recognition of studies, the candidates will be able to apply at POLITEHNICA Bucharest.

In case the student has a Romanian diploma for the last study cycle (high-school or Bachelor, depending on each case), there is no need for a formal recognition of studies from the Ministry of Education.
