Accreditation

Accreditation

The purpose of accreditation is to safeguard the quality of taught programmes by ensuring that they adhere to minimum standards. This gives all stakeholders – students, employers and the higher education institutions themselves – a reliable measurement of the quality of the programmes of study offered, and ultimately enhances transparency. The accreditation procedures are also intended to facilitate student mobility and improve comparability and recognition of university qualifications across national borders.

The accreditation process for degree programmes is co-ordinated by the faculties.
