A wide range of issues was discussed during the work of 3 sessions. For example, assessment of educational programmes oriented towards training of academic specialists (at Master's degree and postgraduate programmes), assessment of innovative and scientific activities in a higher educational institution. The issue on the influence of the quality assurance system and accreditation on the procedures of diploma recogniition was raised for the first time by Claudia Gelleni, President of the ENIC-NARIC Network. The problem of fraud in education is closely connected with this issue: production and distribution of forged diplomas, dissertations, academic degrees and a new trend - foundation of unfair accreditation agencies (accreditation mills).
