National component Norway
Some of the Norwegian institutions are self-accrediting. This means their joint programmes don’t need to be accredited separately. The Norwegian national component is therefore only relevant for joint programmes in which a not self-accrediting Norwegian institution takes part.
At least 50 per cent of the academic FTEs allotted to the provision (of the part(s) that are provided by the Norwegian institution(s)) must be members of the institution’s own academic staff. Of these, professors (full or associate) must be represented among those who teach the core elements of the provision. For the different cycles specific demands apply:
- For first cycle provision, at least 20 per cent of the relevant discipline community/-ies must have competence as professors (full or associate).
- For second cycle provision, at least 10 per cent of the relevant discipline community/-ies must be full professors, and an additional 40 per cent associate professors.
- For third cycle provision, PhD or stipend programme for artistic development work, at least 50 per cent of the relevant discipline community/-ies must be full professors, and the rest associate professors.
There are no additional elements that need to be included in the assessment procedure.
