Automatic Recognition

It allows the generic recognition of a foreign higher education degree or diploma with identical level, objectives and nature to the Portuguese degrees of Licenciado, Mestre and Doutor or to the professional higher technical diploma, provided it is included in the list of degrees and diplomas approved by the commission for the recognition of foreign degrees and diplomas.
