Recognition Foreign diploma

Working in the Dutch healthcare sector with a international qualification is only possible when your diploma is at least equivalent to a Dutch diploma. To determine this, your diploma must be officially recognised. Proof of Dutch language proficiency is also required in almost all situations. If you want to work in one of the BIG professions, registration in the BIG register is a necessary step after recognision of your diploma.
