Accreditation and quality assurance of joint programmes is a challenge for both the higher education institutions and the quality assurance agencies. The main apparent difficulty is the fact that the programme is organised by higher education institutions from different higher education systems and that each of these systems have their own systems of external quality assurance.

Accreditation and quality assurance of joint programmes is a challenge for both the higher education institutions and the quality assurance agencies. The main apparent difficulty is the fact that the programme is organised by higher education institutions from different higher education systems and that each of these systems have their own systems of external quality assurance. This situation creates a burden for joint programmes that need to meet all the expectations arising from these different (and sometimes contradictory) national contexts and legal requirements.

Internal quality assurance of joint programmes

External quality assurance of joint programmes

The European Consortium for Accreditation in higher education (ECA) aims to facilitate the recognition of accreditation decisions across borders. Regarding joint programmes, ECA intends to substitute the different national accreditation procedures by one single accreditation procedure that can lead to several national accreditation decisions.
