Criteria for Programme Accreditation

Download: Criteria for Programme Accreditation, 2004

Quality-related criteria constitute a crucial element in the execution of the HEQC’s functions, fulfilling the dual purpose of serving as evaluative tools for the HEQC’s audit, review and accreditation activities, as well as setting broad benchmarks for quality management arrangements in higher education. The criteria are intended to enable institutions to analyse and reflect on their quality management arrangements and to guide the production of self-evaluation reports or accreditation applications.

Criteria for programme accreditation and minimum standards are intended to be used by:

(i) Higher education institutions:

  • In applications for the accreditation of new programmes or the re-accreditation of existing programmes.
  • As guidelines for follow-up activities after HEQC decisions on accreditation or re-accreditation of programmes.

(ii) The HEQC’s programme evaluators in evaluating applications for the accreditation of new programmes or the re-accreditation of existing programmes.

(iii) Stakeholders, especially students, as indicators of the minimum standards that the HEQC requires for programme quality.
