    Depends on the grade of the diploma.

    It isn't necessarily "easy" to find a job whether your qualification were from the Ukraine or from England.

    The challenge they will have is trying to explain what their qualifications equate to. A lot of people won't know and unless it's explicitly explained, probably won't go out of their way to find out what it means.

    This might help give you a rough indication of what would be expected though:

    Its not that it won't be recognised - a lot of people have non-UK qualifications. It is more that they won't automatically understand what it means, and therefore it will need explaining to them.

    Unless they are a UK citizen, there might be other challenges for them though, particularly their right to work in the UK.

    The qualification itself will need to be explained. People reading an application form will not necessarily know that a Dyplom from the Ukraine is the equivalent of a degree.

    Then they will have to explain the grading system is different in the Ukraine. It is on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being the best score. This is very different to the UK system which typically works on 1st/2.1/2.2/3rd system.

    If she is British then the right to work is not going to be an issue.

    Of course there is a chance. Like most people with a degree or equivalent qualification though, the qualification itself is rarely what gets you the job.

    A diploma from the Ukraine won't stop her getting a job though. If the job has a minimum requirement of a degree and a particular grade (e.g a 2.1), then your friend would need to explain her qualification equates to that.
