Getting your overseas academic degrees and diplomas accredited in Israel can take up to several months. It is suggested that you begin tending to the matter, including the translation of certificates, as soon as possible. In order to obtain accreditation from the Bureau for Evaluation of Foreign Academic Degrees and Diplomas, you must take the following steps:
Bring your original degree and course transcripts, as well as photocopies, to the Ministry of Education Bureau for Evaluation of Foreign Academic Degrees and Diplomas. See Useful Addresses. It is recommended to call in advance in order to clarify public reception hours. If you are unable to supply an original degree, you may be asked to obtain a “Letter of Eligibility” (michtav zeka’ut) from your university, detailing your entitlement to a degree.
