Thursday 28 January, 14.00-15.00 CET
Academic mobility across higher education systems is a key feature of the European Higher Education Area. However, it depends on well-functioning recognition of qualifications and study periods abroad, to which countries have committed themselves through the ratification of the Lisbon Recognition Convention. The Bologna Process has generated several tools aiming to enhance transparency and comparability of credentials and qualifications across higher education systems, such as learning outcomes, the ECTS, qualifications frameworks and the Diploma Supplement, all of which aim to facilitate fair recognition in compliance with the Lisbon Recognition Convention. This webinar will examine these tools and discuss good practices in using them in recognition procedures.
The webinar will be of interest to admissions officers and other staff, including at the managerial level, working in the field of academic recognition and internationalisation at higher education institutions. It will also be of interest to credential evaluators working at ENIC-NARIC centres, as well as students.
Registrations will remain open until the start of the webinar. Participation is free of charge and open to all EUA members as well as other stakeholders with an interest in higher education institutional policy.
The webinar will be chaired by Tia Loukkola, Director of Institutional Development at EUA.
A recording of the webinar will be available on the EUA YouTube Channel.
