Independent Higher Education Australia (IHEA) welcomes the enhancement of global recognition for students in Australia and education institutions with the ratification of the UNESCO Global Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning Higher Education 2019.
“Australia’s ratification of the UNESCO Global Convention on higher education qualifications recognition gives students who study with Australian institutions greater confidence that their qualification will be recognised around the world,” said IHEA CEO, Dr Peter Hendy.
“Being part of the Global Convention will also boost international recognition of Australia’s world-class education sector, which includes independent higher education providers.”
“Australia’s diverse independent higher education sector comprises established and stable providers playing an important role in addressing skill needs and delivering quality education to domestic and international students from a range of backgrounds.”
IHEA’s members comprise independent Universities, University Colleges, as well as not-for-profit and for-profit Institutes of Higher Education.
