As part of the Government's open-access policy, Monaco has joined the ENIC-NARIC network (European Network of Information Centres – National Academic Recognition Information Centre). 

ENIC Monaco is under the aegis of the Department of Education, Youth and Sport. The Academic Counselling and Education Resource Centre (CIEN) acts as a link with the network, as a national information centre.
