University name change

Post by bunty8767 » Wed, 09 Jun 2010 11:40 am


Does anyone know how the MOM deals with University name changes? I graduated from a University in the USA that is recognized by MOM but they have listed it with a name that the University was known as 10 years back. In my EP application, that old name is chosen but my degree has the new name. What is it that I can do to tell them that they have the old name listed there?

Thank you for your answers.

Have you tried calling/contacting MOM? The beauty of the bureaucracy here is that they're pretty reasonable and provide excellent service.

well if you dont call/contact and inform them your ep application would most likely be rejected

I was in the same situation during my LPR application.

I was advised to add an appendix mentioning the changes. MOM / ICA will take care of it.

I have no idea how MOM deals with name changes or names in general. I checked the list of recognized universities in the Netherlands and almost half of them are mentioned wrongly by name. It looks like the lists are 5-10 years old at least
