The Lisbon Convention (an international agreement signed by 50 countries and international organisations, including the European Union, USA, Australia, Canada, Israel and New Zealand) facilitates the recognition of foreign studies among the signatory countries.
Unless a substantial difference is observed, a qualification issued by one of the signatory parties is recognised by the others. In terms of access to higher education studies, the Lisbon Convention guarantees that holders of an upper secondary school or high school qualification that grants access to tertiary education in their home countries will also meet the general requirements to apply for higher education in the rest of the signatory countries.
