Accreditation is a transparent procedure of quality control, during which an independent certifying body based on internationally comparable defined standards, decides if the university institutions or programs of study meet the minimum quality requirements. Accreditation procedures define the status and recognition of the institution, the legal status and the directions of research for a specific time. Accreditation in the field of higher education offers society and interest groups assurance that the quality of teaching and study meets the international standards, and at the same time it enhances the level of transparency in a current education market, increasingly blurred by national and international offers of education.
The essential functions of accreditation are:
- Protecting students from the offers, which are not evidenced or recorded and may lead to foreseen results (chances for employment, international recognition of degrees etc..);
- Transparency, comparability and therefore more choices in the education and labor market within the country and throughout the European area of higher education;
- Facilitating international mobility through recognition of reciprocal studies and improving opportunities of graduates in the European labor market;
- Creating a basis for competition among educational institutions for students respectively for public and private funds.Below is a summary table of the study programs at ALDENT University, decisions of the Council of Ministers and orders of the Minister of Education and Science that attest the licensing and accreditation of these programs.
