  • Japan has been working in cooperation with foreign countries to elaborate and implement joint educational programs with quality assurance for producing intellectual human resources and creating new knowledge and technologies responding to today’s knowledge-based society.
    We have been making efforts in building a shared framework for quality-assured universities exchange in East Asia.
    In this context, in September 2011, Japan convened the “International Symposium on Exchange among Universities with Quality Assurance in the East Asian Region” with participation of more than 380 participants from governments, quality assurance agencies and universities including representatives from Australia.
  • In November 2011, Japan hosted the International Conference of States to Examine and Adopt Amendments to the 1983 UNESCO Convention in Tokyo.
    The conference ended successfully with participation of 26 countries from Asia and the Pacific including Australia.
  • The text of revised convention was adopted unanimously by 26 participated countries at the Tokyo conference.
    In the revised convention provides the following provisions concerning:
    1) basic principle related to the assessment of qualifications,
    2) recognition of qualifications giving access to higher education, partial studies and higher education qualifications: and
    3) information on assessment/accreditation and recognition matters
