Quality Management

Accreditation: A guarantee of quality

In order to ensure quality, study programmes are reviewed regularly. In higher education, this is carried out by independent, external accreditation agencies. Only those institutions which have passed the accreditation process successfully receive a certificate, and this represents an important guarantee of quality.
