Apply for the Certificate

How can you apply for a Certificate for Quality in Internationalisation?

ECA welcomes applications for the Certificate for Quality in Internationalisation from all recognised programmes and institutions.

Undergoing the assessment is voluntary and does not substitute existing external quality assurance or accreditation procedures.

The CeQuInt procedure is carried out by a ECA member agency which charges the following fee for a stand-alone procedure (not combined with a regular accreditation):

  • Programme: 16 000 euro (excluding direct costs of travel and subsistence)
  • Institution: 27 000 euro (excluding direct costs of travel and subsistence)

An assessment of internationalisation may be combined with a regular external quality assurance procedure, but it is a supplementary and improvement-oriented service. In this case the agency fee needs to be negotiated with the agency conducting the procedure.

In addition, ECA charges a fee for the award of the certificate. The following ECA fees apply:

  • Programme: 800 euro
  • Institution: 2,000 euro.

Before filling in the application form please read the Certification Procedure and consult the list of the CeQuInt Agencies.



  • Please note that for applications at programme level, at least 1 cohort of students must have graduated.
  • Please note that this field is compulsory, if you are applying for an assessment at Programme Level.
