Section 7. General approval of foreign tertiary vocational education

On application from individuals, NOKUT decides whether education from a foreign tertiary vocational college or another vocational education from abroad at the equivalent level, should be granted a general approval so that it, based on its level and scope, can be approved as on a par with accredited tertiary vocational education. The appeals body cannot re-examine NOKUT's assessment of the level and scope of the education in question. The Ministry may issue regulations concerning procedures and opportunity to appeal in cases regarding approval of foreign tertiary vocational education.
