In the area of higher education, the agreement provides for the encouragement of exchange of visits by researchers, university lecturers with the aim of exploring the possibilities of academic and scholarship exchange.

Article five of the agreement provides for encouragement of sports cooperation between various sports institutions in the two countries. It also encourages translation and publication of fine works of art produced in one country for the benefit of the other. The agreement shall be valid for five years and will automatically be renewed for another five years, unless one of the parties expresses a written desire to quit from the agreement, six months before its expiry.

Study sessions on history, art and culture of any of the two countries shall be organised in the institutions of higher learning. Efforts shall be exerted to incorporate elements of geography and culture of the two countries into the educational curriculum and also encourage student exchange programmes. The agreements stipulates that certain procedures be adopted by the two countries to ensure mutual recognition of certificates and academic qualifications awarded by institutions of the two countries.
