Nowadays, higher degree holders are largely working in countries distinct from the one(s) where their degree(s) has been warranted. They require procedure(s) to recognize and guarantee the degree(s) they possess and facilitate, for hiring companies, the process of candidates screening. For all purposes, a distinction needs to be made between diploma recognition and diploma accreditation. As the name implies, the former merely acknowledges the degree earned in a particular subject matter; whereas diploma accreditation is a detailed and specific procedure required from a degree holder who has studied and is working in two distinct places. Similarly, foreign and national students who have taken courses abroad need to acquire some kind of diploma acceptance or degree accreditation such as diploma validation or a degree recognition. Not all universities and colleges follow the same academic curriculum for granting degrees such as Master, diploma, and/or doctorate (PhD), which makes it crucial to certify the validity of the issued diploma either by degree validation or degree acceptance. Doctor Diploma recognition, a Master Diploma Recognition, aBachelor Diploma recognition and/or Higher Diploma recognition are methods to certify the extent of specialization an individual has earned either as a Doctor, Master, Bachelor, and/or Higher Diploma holder. In this sense, a Doctor Degree validation guarantees that the respective degree is issued from an accredited university and shows the highest level of knowledge. The same applies to Master Degree validation and Bachelor Degree validation, which certifies that the center issuing the degree meet all academic requirements. Nevertheless, higher Degree validation becomes necessary when the degree is issued from either a public or a private academic institution.
