Education Barriers Project 2003-2007
The five Nordic ENIC/NARIC offices have carried out a multi-faceted project to reduce barriers to inter-Nordic mobility and enhance cooperation on recognition.
The Education Barriers project (Gränshinderprojektet in Swedish) was carried out from 2003 to 2007 with the financial support of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
Final report of the project:
- Towards a Nordic Recognition Strategy (pdf, 1.5 MB) – NORRIC, 2007
The project was aimed at
identifying and reducing the barriers to mobility of higher education qualification holders between the Nordic countries
developing Nordic recognition cooperation with a view to learning from each other and setting up common standards to the extent possible
The major part of this work was carried out in a number of subprojects:
Mutual evaluation of the Nordic ENIC/NARIC offices
Teacher recognition in the Nordic countries
Deviations from the 3+2 degree structure and recognition issues ("bicycle project")
Recognition standards of Nordic ENIC/NARIC offices
Information work of Nordic ENIC/NARIC offices
The project was finalised in 2007.
Together the directors of the five offices made up the management group for the project, which was coordinated by Ulf Öhlund, former head of the Swedish office.
