Assessment procedure

A Lithuanian higher education institution can submit the assessment report to the Lithuanian accreditation agency (SKVC) as a basis for their request for accreditation of the joint programme.

There are three preconditions:

  • (1) the coordinating agency is included in the European Quality Assurance Register;
  • (2) the institution has translated the assessment report into the state language (Lithuanian); and
  • (3) this translated document needs to follow the six areas included in the Lithuanian framework and each of these six areas shall be assessed on a four-point scale.

The coordination point can provide a matrix with the correspondence of the assessment criteria in the European shared component and the additional Lithuanian national component with the criteria in the Lithuanian framework.
