In collaboration with UNESCO, the IAU WHED Portal provides authoritative information
on higher education systems, credentials in 196 countries and territories and over 
20,000 officially accredited or recognized higher education institutions (HEIs).

The IAU WHED Portal has been THE reference tool since 1950 for national higher
education authorities, government agencies and national academic bodies. Since the adoption
in 2019 of the Unesco Global Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning 
Higher Education
, each HEIs listed are identified with a unique identifier: the Global WHED ID

HEIs that are Members of IAU benefit from enhanced visibility on the WHED Portal. In addition
to being clearly identified as an IAU Member, these institutions are displayed at the top of the
search results
and have access to a permalink allowing them to share their WHED profile with
others easily
. They can also include campus photos as well as their logo on their WHED page.
