AUB’s Issam Fares Institute organizes workshop on integrating Syrians into Lebanese Higher Education through recognition of qualifications

The AUB's Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs is organizing a five day training workshop as part of the Integrating Syrians into Lebanese Higher Education through Recognition of Qualifications project, which is implemented in partnership with Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT) as part of the Grant scheme of the HOPES project funded by the European Union's Regional Trust Fund in response to the Syrian Crisis, the 'Madad Fund' and implemented by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) together with the British Council, Campus France and Nuffic.

The project aims to develop a comprehensive, functional, and tailor-made recognition tool for the Lebanese higher education sector to be able to integrate Syrian refugees who do not have access to their academic documents or have documents that need official validation. The tool, Qualification's Passport for Refugees, has been developed by NOKUT and modified to fit the Lebanese context.

During the workshop, participants from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, as well as admission officers from AUB, LIU, and Al-Jinan University will be trained on how to use the tool which is a pioneer project in Lebanon and in the MENA region.
