Information on the agency's work

The Agency for Quality Assurance in the Galician University System (ACSUG) is a public organisation that was set up in 2001 with the main mission to contribute to assuring and improving the quality of the Galician University System (SUG).

ACSUG provides constant support to gathering and channeling information among the Galician universities, other institutions and social agents, contributing to help the SUG remain up-to-date.

External quality assurance activities in the scope of the ESG:
  • Assessment of institutional QA systems (FIDES-AUDIT)
  • Verification of new (Bologna-type) programmes (“ex-ante accreditation”)
  • Monitoring of previously Verified programmes (including modifications)
  • Accreditation of existing programmes (i.e. cyclical reaccreditation)
  • Reviews at the request of other Autonomous Communities
  • Reviews outside Spain, notably in Peru and Central Asia
