The National Institution for Academic Degrees and Quality Enhancement of Higher Education (NIAD-QE) has established the National Information Center for Academic Recognition Japan to ensure credibility of Japanese higher education qualifications and to facilitate recognition of qualifications between Japan, the Asia-Pacific, and the world.

This Center was established within NIAD-QE on September 1, 2019, as the official national information center (NIC) of Japan in accordance with the Asia-Pacific Regional Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications in Higher Education (the Tokyo Convention). 

The National Information Center for Academic Recognition Japan will provide information about the higher education system, academic qualifications and quality assurance system in Japan, along with information about education systems and quality assurance systems of other countries.

NIAD-QE would appreciate your support and cooperation to facilitate mobility of students and academics between your country and Japan. Check the official website for more information: and the official flyer for further reference.
