Focus of external quality assurance

  • Accreditation of higher education institutions;
  • Accreditation of higher education programmes.

Can higher education institutions choose a suitable EQAR-registered agency?

Yes, all Danish higher education institutions are able to choose an EQAR-registered agency for their mandatory external quality assurance. Additional conditions and/or eligibility requirements apply for:

  • The accreditation of Danish education programmes offered abroad;
  • The accreditation of professional education programmes offered by transnational providers.
  • Eligibility requirements for foreign agencies
    • for accrediting Danish higher education institutions or programmes: the agency must be internationally recognised. In order for the agency to be internationally recognised it has to be either registered in EQAR or to prove a number of other conditions (e.g. ensure sufficient professional capacity, reliability and transparency in its method and processes, include international experts, be subject of evaluation of its own practices etc.);
    • for accrediting Danish education programmes offered abroad: the agency must prove ESG compliance, which is ensured by the agency's registration on EQAR;
    • for accrediting professional programmes offered by transnational providers: any agency that is member of ENQA and complies with the ESG.
  • Condition for the agency's work:
    • for accrediting Danish higher education institutions or programmes or Danish education programmes offered abroad: the agency can use its own criteria.
    • for accrediting professional programmes offered by transnational providers: the agency has to follow the guidelines from the Danish Ministry and any other further requirements defined by the Danish Accreditation Council.
  • Further information/regulations: Denmark - National Report regarding the Bologna Process implementation 2012-2015 (p. 14).

Can higher education institutions use the European Approach for the Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes?

  • Yes, the European Approach is available to all higher education institutions.
    • Joint programmes can be accredited by all “internationally recognised” agencies. If an agency is registered on EQAR, it is automatically considered “internationally recognised”; otherwise, it has to prove this in an individual procedure to the Danish authorities.
