ARENA project webinar series: Refugees Country Briefings

16 March 2021

The Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT) organises a series of five webinars as part of the Erasmus+ supported ARENA (Refugees and Recognition – Toolkit 3) project. The webinars will present refugees country briefings for Yemen, Sudan, Palestine, Burundi and Rwanda.

Evaluating qualifications from refugee producing countries can be challenging for staff working in recognition and admission – especially in cases where candidates present insufficient or lack of documentation. Highly experienced credential evaluators will in these webinars present a systematised overview of the five different education systems and provide recommendations for navigating in a landscape of complicated cases.

Target groups:

  • University staff member working in international admissions.
  • Working on recognition of foreign qualifications.
  • Credential evaluator.
  • An immigration officer or integration adviser for newly arrived migrants.
