International Education Guides
IQAS has developed the International Education Guides (IEGs) as a resource for educational institutions, employers and professional licensing bodies. These guides are country specific and help facilitate and streamline the decisions that organizations make regarding the recognition of international credentials. For more information on the IEGs or to order your copies, contact the IQAS office at 780‑427‑2655.
In addition to the IEGs, IQAS provides informative full day workshops on foreign credential assessment methodology for those who work in the field. These workshops provide participants with instruction on the assessment process as well as a manual with exercises. These are two types of workshops: assessment methodology and country specific. The assessment methodology workshop provides an introduction and overview of how to evaluate foreign educational credentials. The country specific workshop provides an in depth look at the historical background, education system, and grading system. Sign up here for more information on upcoming IQAS assessment workshops.
