EUA Special Update on EU trade agreements and on the Recognition of professional qualifications

Howard Davies

EUA reports regularly on two policy areas which have implications for higher education institutions: EU trade agreements and EU legislation on the recognition of professional qualifications.


As the globalisation of higher education gathers pace and as potential EU trade agreements proliferate, so the overlap of the two areas becomes more significant. The principal point of convergence – and the focus of this Update – is the Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA).

This Update is number 15 in the professional qualifications series and number 6 in the trade series.
