Workshop “Recognition of foreign Higher Education Qualifications” – Erasmus+ KA2 STINT project

In the framework of the Erasmus+ KA2 project “Strengthening of Internationalisation in B&H Higher Education (STINT)”, on Friday, March 30, 2018, a workshop about the recognition of higher education qualifications was organized and held at the University of Bihać. The lecturers invited were Mr. Dženan Omanović, Head of department for Information and Cooperation in the Centre for Information and Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications (CIP) and Mrs. Jelena Starčević, Senior Associate for Information and Recognition in the field of Higher Education in the Ministry of Education and Culture of Republika Srpska.

The lecturers are representatives from institutions which are partners in the mentioned project. As the subject concerns a current issue related to the adoption of the “Law for the Recognition of Qualifications” at the Cantonal level, as well as the presentation of models for academic recognition in public higher education institutions, the workshop was intended for the representatives of the Cantonal Ministry of Education and Culture and the employees of University of Bihać who are most commonly engaged in Commissions for academic recognition of higher education qualifications, but also in the recognition of study periods and passed examinations for those students who spend part of their studies abroad through different exchange programmes. The workshop was particularly successful; the Rulebook of Nostrification which is in effect was discusses but also the necessity of adopting the Law for Recognition at the Cantonal level, all by means of the application of recognition procedures according to the Lisbon Recognition Convention. Many practical cases of recognition procedures were presented and discussed. Since the attendants showed a great interest for the subject matter, it was agreed to hold another workshop with the same lecturers in the upcoming period.
