Academic Recognition of Higher Education Entrance, Intermediate and Final Qualifications in the European Community: Multilateral and Bilateral Conventions, Unilateral Decisions.
Commission of the European Communities, Brussels (Belgium).; ERASMUS Bureau, Brussels (Belgium).
This publication provides an overview of the multilateral conventions, bilateral conventions, and unilateral decisions on the recognition of higher education entrance, intermediate, and final qualifications which are in force in Economic Community Member States. The material collected originates mainly from three sources: (1) the study "Academic Recognition of Diplomas in the European Community, Present State and Prospects" by Edwin H. Cox; (2) material collected by the Education Information Network in the European Community (EURYDICE), European Unit, in 1981; and (3) information collected by the European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students (ERASMUS) Bureau from the National Academic Recognition Information Centres (NARICs). Appendices (comprising nearly half the document) include the European Convention on the Equivalence of Diplomas Leading to Admission to Universities; the Convention on the Recognition of Studies, Diplomas, and Degrees Concerning Higher Education in the States Belonging to the Europe Region; the Agreement between the Government of the French Republic and the Government of the German Federal Republic Concerning Exemptions from Classes, Examinations, and Diplomas for Admittance to Higher Education in Science, Arts Subjects, and Humanities in Each Other's Country; and an extract from a Cultural Agreement Between the Grand-Duchy of Luxemburg and the Republic of France.
