Are you on our mailing list?

The IARQ group has a listserv/mailing list for the staff of NUAS universities that work with international admissions and/or credential evaluation.  Through this listserv you can ask questions regarding issues you face in your daily work and provide assistance to other colleagues. You can also share news and update in our field and provide information about relevant training and seminars.

If you work in a NUAS university and your job involves international admission, this is a place for you to connect to your Nordic colleagues.
