Effective from 1 February 2018, the Tokyo Convention will make it easier for Australian higher education qualifications to be recognised across the Asia-Pacific.

Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham said the Tokyo Convention the Turnbull Government had worked to deliver would bring the recognition of higher education qualifications into the 21st Century, taking into account the significant expansion and innovation in education in the region.

“The ratification of the Tokyo Convention will benefit all Australian higher education graduates, both domestic and international, by providing greater opportunities to work or study across the Asia-Pacific region,” Minister Birmingham said.
