How to Apply

Applying online is the best way to apply; it will not only speed up your application but also allow you to monitor and track the progress of your application.

To use the online application, you should follow these steps:

  1. Register a new account through the UK NARIC User Portal
  2. Upon completion of the registration process, you will receive an acknowledgement email containing a link, which when followed, will enable you to activate your account
  3. Log in to your account using your email address and password
  4. Start your application by selecting the service(s) you require, uploading scanned versions of your qualifications, and filling in your contact details. Please note that we require the following documentation in order to process your application:
    • a covering letter or email with your contact details and stating the purpose of your enquiry
    • a photocopy or scanned version of your certificate(s) together with final transcript(s)
    • a photocopy or scanned version of a certified translation in English if necessary
    • payment for the service
    • there is no need to send us a self-addressed envelope; a postage option is provided within the check-out process.
  5. At the end of the application process, you will be offered several options to pay for the service(s) you selected. Once a payment method has been chosen, you will be sent an email confirming the service(s) you have ordered, and providing you with confirmation of the services you have ordered, and your unique enquiry ID number.
  6. Following receipt of this confirmation email, you will then be kept up to date as to the progress of your application via email, and will be able to communicate with us using the messaging function within the UK NARIC User Portal.
