The Joint Information System developed to facilitate the recognition of academic qualifications in the Western Balkan region is now publicly available on http://wb-qualifications.org/.
The first regional register of accredited higher education institutions and programmes is the main novelty of the System. It is developed as the regional database that will provide precise information and relevant documents on all higher education institutions (HEIs) and study programmes in the region.
Currently it contains information on accreditation of over 6000 HEIs and study programmes in six economies. It is being regularly updated based on information provided by accreditation authorities in each economy.
The System also contains description of higher education systems, recognition procedures (describing both recognition for the purpose of employment and continuing education), contacts of institutions in the region in charge of the recognition of academic qualifications and the description of quality assurance systems in the Western Balkan region.
The Joint Information System is an output of the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) – Education Reform Initiative of South Eastern Europe ERI SEE Secretariat Working group on recognition of academic qualifications.
