|Issue Framing Panels|
Panel 1: Professional Credential Evaluation Perspective:
The panel of credential evaluation agencies will provide an overview of how their agency shapes their evaluation methodology based on their philosophical approach to the evaluation of the first cycle bologna-compliant degree and whether this has changed over time. The panel will frame the approach of the evaluation of the first cycle degrees in four distinct systems: Norway, Netherlands, Italy and France.
The panel will also discuss if the purpose of the evaluation, ie further education or immigration, determines the language used in the report produced.
Panel 2: The Institutional Perspective: Evaluation for Admission
The panel of admissions officers from different types of institutions will detail their admissions policies for applicants holding a first cycle bologna-compliant degree and provide a historical overview of how that policy was established over time. In addition, the panel will discuss both the realities and challenges that are faced in carrying out their policy in the admissions office and throughout campus.
Panel 3: The Employment Perspective
This panel will explore the interplay between placement recommendations, evaluation, and immigration decisions, and how that interplay impacts post-graduate employment-based visa opportunities.
