International qualifications

If you are from outside of the UK and have qualifications outside of the UK you may still be accredited for Engineering Council registration.

If your qualifications are from within the EU the FEANI database holds information on engineering courses which the Engineering Council recognise.

We also recognise qualifications which have been awarded by institutions from countries that have signed up to either the Washington Accord, the Sydney Accord, or Dublin Accord. To find out more you can visit the website here.

There're many reasons why your qualifications may not be accredited. It may be the date that the course was undertaken or that the format of the course was not accredited.

Other reasons why qualification may not be accredited could be because the qualification is from somewhere hasn't signed up to any of the accords.

This will not necessarily prevent you from applying for registration, it is at this point we would recommend that you apply for a qualification assessment.

If your qualifications are found to not be accredited you can apply for your unaccredited qualifications to be assessed by the ICP Panel.

To apply for a qualification assessment you will need the following:

  • Certificate of Qualification
  • Transcripts of studies
