With the ratification by Andorra on 5 December 2022, the 2019 Global Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning Higher Education will enter into force on 5 March 2023.

The Global Convention establishes universal principles for fair, transparent, and non-discriminatory recognition of higher education qualifications, qualifications giving access to higher education, and offering avenues for further study and employment. This is a milestone for higher education as countries commit to strengthening international cooperation in higher education and helping make academic mobility and the recognition of qualifications a reality for millions around the world.

Other countries that have ratified the convention are Andorra, Armenia, Cabo Verde, Côte d’Ivoire, Croatia, Cuba, Estonia, France, Holy See, Iceland, Japan, Lithuania, Nicaragua, Norway, Palestine, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, Tunisia, the United Kingdom of Great Britain, and Northern Ireland.
