Quality management of the Foundation

Internal quality assurance | External quality assurance

As an institution of external quality assurance the Foundation is subject to particular quality requirements. Comprehensive internal and external measures assure the quality of the Foundation's performance. The measures correspond with the “Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area” (ESG) and thereby ensure international recognition of the Foundation’s work.

Internal quality assurance

The central objective of the internal quality assurance of the Foundation is the continuous monitoring and, if required, enhancement of internal processes in order to ensure a qualitative performance of the Foundation’s statutory tasks that is simultaneously as efficient as possible. In addition, the systematic internal quality assurance allows concrete and comprehensive feedback on the performance of the statutory tasks and the expectations of stakeholders toward the Foundation. The quality assurance measures also contribute to guaranteeing consistency of the decisions of the Foundation’s bodies and committees.

External quality assurance

In its statutes the Foundation committed itself to regularly evaluate the Foundation's work. Therefore, an independet group of external experts assesses both fulfilment of the Foundation's statutory tasks as well as conformity with the membership criteria of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA). By means of external evaluation the Accreditation Council not only fulfils its legal obligation but in particular uses the results to improve the quality of its work.
