Career Path Report

Career Path Report

Qualification comparison with more detail and suggested ‘next steps’

The UK NARIC Career Path Report provides you with an in-depth description of your award, advice on the comparative UK level, and recommendations for future study and/or professional development in the UK.

The in-depth description and advice relates to one of your qualifications only. If you send your other qualifications to us as well, then these are listed, and comparability information provided if that’s appropriate.

If you are sending more than one qualification to us, please indicate in your covering letter which qualification you require the in-depth report for.

We are unable to provide a comparability statement for the grades obtained in your qualifications. We recommend that you present your degree transcripts directly to potential employers/admitting institutions so that they can evaluate your marks and grades.

What will be in my report?

  • comparability statement giving a description of the equivalent UK qualification level
  • overview of the education system from which your qualification originates
  • the entrance level for your qualification, course content, examination methods, the type of training, and grading systems
  • recommendations for further study and progression / employment in the UK
  • professional rights in country of origin.

Here is an example of a Career Path Report.
