CIP held training at IUS


On Friday, September 21, 2018, Centre for Information and Recognition of Qualifications in Higher Education (hereinafter CIP), was guest at the International University of Sarajevo.

CIP is a participant in the project "Strengthening the internationalization of higher education in Bosnia and Herzegovina", and one of its components: the procedures of academic recognition harmonized with the Lisbon Recognition Convention.

As an additional value of the project between the partners in the project, besides training on academic recognition procedures at public higher education institutions, two training at private higher education institutions are also held.

The International University of Sarajevo, as one of the leading private universities with which CIP has excellent cooperation, had been selected as a place where this extremely useful and important training was held. In addition to representatives of the IUS, representatives of other higher education institutions, who were interested in this training, were also invited.

Guests were welcomed by the rector of International University of Sarajevo Prof. Dr. Ahmet Yildirim, and by Jahja Imamovic Deputy Secretary- General for Legal and Administrative Affairs of IUS.

Professional trainers, who also held training in public higher education institutions, were Jelena Starcevic from the Ministry of Education and Culture of Republika Srpska and Dzenan Omanovic from the Center.

One of the competencies of CIP is to make recommendations concerning the recognition of diplomas obtained outside of Bosnia and Herzegovina to the Ministry of the Republic of Srpska, cantonal ministries, and Brčko District of BiH aimed at finding employment, continuing education and exercising other rights stemming from the obtained qualification.

In its activities, CIP cooperates with the following relevant institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina: Ministry of Civil Affairs of BiH, Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Srpska, Federal Ministry of Education and Science, cantonal ministries of education, Department of Education in the Government of Brčko District of BiH, Agency for Development of Higher Education and Quality Assurance, the Republic of Srpska Commission for Information and Recognition, and the higher education institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

We are very grateful that CIP has chosen our University as a partner in this project and we hope that the training provided will be of mutual benefit.
