The EAR HEI Manual (European Recognition Manual for Higher Education Institutions)

The European Recognition Manual for Higher Education Institutions (EAR HEI) manual has now been published and aimed to assist credential evaluators and admissions officers in higher education institutions in practising fair recognition.

The EAR HEI manual is based on the European Area of Recognition (EAR) manual published in 2012, which aimed to streamline recognition practices at the level of the ENIC-NARIC networks (the national information centres on recognition).

The EAR manual was based on the Lisbon Recognition Convention and its subsidiary texts, and in addition on recommendations from projects, working groups and on publications. This manual was recommended by the ministers of Higher Education of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) in the Bologna Bucharest communiqué (April 2012).
