Is there a website that can tell me what's the UK equivalent for my Swiss qualifications?

Have tried to google key words like Equivalent uk qualifications... but am going nowhere.

Thanks very much if you can help.

Try www.uknrp.org.uk/

I think they will give you a certificate confirming the equivelence of the qualification. You might have to pay but it looks like they offer a free trial.

Thanks KingofHighVIs I have had a look and cannot get to the free trial. THey charge £46 which I do not want to pay [greedy emoticon]grin as I do not need a certificate stating it I just need to make sure that what I have done previously back home is at least equivalent to GCSEs.

You need to look at the ISCED rating. These are published by UNESCO (the UN).

circa.europa.eu/irc/dsis/employment/info/data/eu_lfs/lfs_main/Related_documents/ISCED_EN.htm

GCSEs are Level 3. Just google for swiss ISCED levels and then uk levels and compare.

Swiss levels are here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Schweizer_Bildungssystem.svg
