EQAA uses standards, which fully take into account and adhere to the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area.

Due to the differences between universities and other types of higher education institutions, EQAA uses slightly modified sets of standards for these two types of institutions. Similarly, EQAA also uses two sets of standards for programme accreditation, depending on the type of institution offering the degree.

In order to adequately assess Joint Degree programmes, specific standards for Joint Degrees are used by EQAA.


Institutional Accreditation

Standards for other higher education institutions
