The WHED Portal is the unique online reference tool that provides up-to-date, authoritative and comprehensive information on global higher education systems, credentials and over 18,400 higher education institutions in 196 countries and territories using information made available by the national competent bodies. The IAU/UNESCO information Centre updates the database in collaboration with UNESCO on an ongoing basis focusing each year on one specific region or geographical area. It also provides monthly updates on IAU Members, ad hoc updates received from institutions, and regular updates on national higher education systems and bodies. In 2019, the main focus is on Europe in collaboration with the ENIC-NARIC Network.
