A week ago, at a session of the People's Council of Turkmenistan, the Law on Accession to the Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning Higher Education obtained within the framework of the European Education System was adopted. This convention, often called the Lisbon Convention, was developed by the Council of Europe in agreement with UNESCO.
If, before joining this international agreement, graduates of European higher education institutions had to take several additional courses in order to have their qualifications recognized in their native Turkmenistan, they are now guaranteed more acceptable ways to prove it.
Students have a wider horizon in the national curriculum, as well as easier access to degrees and titles in the future. In addition, it will be much easier for them to get a job in their field of study.
