After several months of repeated requests, the Agency for Developement of Higher Education and Quality Assurance has registered the University of Banja Luka and the University of East Sarajevo in the State Register of Accredited Higher Education Institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina (the Register).
The enrollment followed discussions between the Higher Education Accreditation Agency of Republika Srpska, Ministry for Scientific and Technological Development, Higher Education and Information Society and the Agency for Development of Higher Education and Quality Assurance, which was mediated by experts from the TAIEX Mission of Professional Assessment - Accreditation of Higher Education Institutions organized by the European Commission.
It is important to emphasize that enrollment in the Registry establishes continuity in the accreditation of higher education institutions and that students will have no problems enrolling in other higher education institutions in countries from the region and Europe, which is also important for the participation of universities in EU funded projects.
We remind that the delay of the entry in the referred Register lasted more than ten months, and that the Delegation of the European Union to Bosnia and Herzegovina was actively involved in mediating in overcoming this problem. In this regard, the European Commission has submitted a notice on the holding of the Professional Assessment Mission - Accreditation of Higher Education Institutions, held from February 4-7, 2020 in Sarajevo and Banja Luka.
