Launched in September 2018, the “Armenian-Norwegian Cooperation in Admission and Recognition (NACAR)” project has entered its final phase. The overall objective of the project was to foster cooperation between the Armenian and Norwegian universities, especially in the field of admission and recognition. One more visit to Oslo was organized by the Norwegian colleagues which took place on April 19-22. The visit was targeted to create new opportunities for cooperation, as well as to discuss the final conference to be held in Yerevan in May.
Four credential evaluators of ENIC Armenia participated in the visit together with the two representatives of the Brusov State University and one representative from the Yerevan State Medical University. The agenda of the visit was tailored in accordance to the wishes of the Armenian partners, and it included meetings with the NOKUT and the University of Southeast Norway/USN. During the first day visit to NOKUT the digital solutions in the recognition were presented, namely, the Norwegian Diploma Registry as well as the internal recognition register. The participants also got acquainted with the national developments in the field of recognition of foreign qualifications, especially how the automatic recognition works between the Nordic countries.
On the second day the Armenian delegation visited the Drammen campus of the USN. The Armenian higher education institutions representatives presented their institutions and education programs. Afterwards, the representatives of Brusov State University and Yerevan State Medical University had bilateral meetings to discuss the possibilities of further cooperation.
