Institutional accreditation (guide)

Sidst opdateret: October 17, 2016

Institutional accreditation is designed to strengthen the work performed at education institutions in connection with developing programmes characterised by steadily increasing educational quality and relevance.

Institutional accreditation offers staff at institutions the freedom to establish a quality assurance system as long as it can be shown that the institution lives up to the five criteria for quality and relevance laid down in the ministerial order.

This guide describes the information that the accreditation panel needs to assess whether the higher education institution lives up to the five criteria for quality and relevance laid down in the ministerial order, and whether the quality assurance system at the institution in general and in practice provides quality and relevance at programme level and at the level of local provisions of programmes.
The guide was sent for a hearing at institutions before publication.
