A mutual recognition agreement is a formal agreement between two accreditation agencies in which they agree to recognise the outcomes (results or decisions) of each other's accreditation procedures. Such agreements are intended to contribute to the recognition of qualifications and thus facilitate the mobility of students and graduates in Europe. These agreements also eliminate the need for multiple (national) accreditations for joint programmes and institutions operating across borders.
