Evidence of your relevant European qualification

To register with us, you must have completed an acceptable medical degree. This is commonly known as your primary medical qualification.

What do I need to provide?

As part of your application you’ll need to:

  • check we will accept your relevant European qualification from our EEA qualification evidence guide
  • provide a copy of your relevant European qualification certificate
  • provide an English translation of it (if applicable) 
  • complete a digital identity check.

What must my certificate include?

Make sure you provide a scanned copy of the decorative relevant European qualification certificate you were given when you first qualified.

Your certificate must show the exact date you passed your final exam or assessment. If it doesn’t, you should also provide a letter from your university confirming this date.

Primary source verification

Once you have checked you hold a relevant European qualification, you’ll need to have your relevant European qualification independently verified before we can grant your registration with a licence to practise. Read about what this means for you.
