What if my qualifications are not covered in the guidance?
If your qualifications or experience are not covered in the guidance document you may still be suitable to apply for IEng. You should ask the IHE for an individual Career Assessment. Your documents will then be put to the IHE Academic Standards Panel for consideration by engineering or academic professionals. They will either confirm your eligibility or provide you with feedback and guidance on the best route for you to achieve IEng registration.
What if I studied overseas?
If you have studied overseas, a UK ENIC Statement of Comparability that covers your degree should enable you to study via the Recognised Qualifications Route. You should contact UK ENIC directly, and obtain a Statement of Comparability yourself before making your application. More information on this can be found by visiting the UK ENIC website at: https://www.enic.org.uk/Qualifications/SOC
