The holder of a foreign educational certificate has the right to continue their studies in Russia, including the Siberian University of Consumer Cooperation (SibUCC). In this case, many educational documents issued in foreign countries do not require the recognition procedure.
In most cases, the question of the procedure for recognizing a foreign educational certificate (outdated term "nostrification") is that if there is an international treaty between the Russian Federation and the country of issue of the document.
Article 107 of the Federal Law as of December 29, 2012 No. 273-FZ "On Education in the Russian Federation" provides that recognition in the Russian Federation of education and (or) qualifications obtained in a foreign state is carried out in accordance with the international agreements of the Russian Federation governing the recognition and determination of equivalence of foreign education and (or) foreign qualifications (hereinafter - international agreements on mutual recognition), and the legislation of the Russian Federation.
Here you can find some information from the Federal Service for Supervision in Education and Science (Rosobrnadzor) about international agreements on mutual recognition of educational certificates: http://nic.gov.ru/ru/docs/foreign/confirmation
In addition, in the Russian Federation, foreign education and (or) foreign qualifications obtained in foreign educational organizations are recognized. The list of educational organizations with the indication of the conformity of education and / or qualifications obtained in them to education and (or) qualifications obtained in the Russian Federation is established by the Ordinance of the Government of the Russian Federation as of December 30, 2015 No. 2777-p "On approval of the list of foreign educational organizations that issue documents on education and (or) on qualifications recognized in the Russian Federation".
If your educational certificate issued in a foreign country is not covered by the action of the listed regulations, you will need to contact Glavexpertsentr and go through the procedure of recognition of foreign education (http://nic.gov.ru/ru/proc/nic
