Report: Effects of the statement on foreign higher education qualifications
A study by UHR has shown that evaluations of foreign higher educational qualifications help foreign graduates find work more quickly. After one year, 9 per cent more are employed if they have a statement, while 11 per cent more are after three years. Read more about UHR’s study.
