The accreditation of a study direction is the assessment of the study direction and the relevant study programmes implemented by the higher education institution or college. If the accreditation of the study direction has been successful, the higher education institution or college shall be awarded the right to issue state-recognised diplomas on the acquisition of the study programmes in the relevant study direction.

The accreditation procedure of the study direction shall consist of two stages:

  • the assessment of the study direction, which involves the preparation of the self-assessment report, the on-site visit by experts, and the preparation of the joint report by the experts;
  • the accreditation of the study direction, which involves taking the decision.

Since 1 January 2019, the higher education institutions or colleges are allowed to select any agency listed on the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR) for the assessment of the study direction.
