Education Standards in Georgia[edit]

Georgia is a part of the Lisbon Recognition Convention and Bologna Process, and therefore, the Georgian public education system (general, vocational, and higher) is fully compatible with international standards of education. Diplomas issued by Georgian public high schools, colleges, and higher education institutions offering BA, MA, and Ph.D. programs, are recognized by European countries and the USA. [2]
