Palestine joins recognition of qualifications convention

The Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research announced that Palestine has joined the Global Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications Concerning Higher Education, a UNESCO treaty that establishes principles for assessing academic credentials, writes Ismail Alashwal for Al-Fanar Media.

The convention, adopted by UNESCO in 2019, aims to alleviate the obstacles facing students, teachers, researchers and job seekers in getting their prior learning experience recognised outside their countries of origin.

The agreement also seeks to facilitate academic mobility, improve the quality of higher education institutions, and enhance international cooperation in higher education, according to guidelines for implementing the convention.
