Quality Assurance in the Nordic Higher Education: Accreditation like practice

Number of pages: 37 p. | Year of publication: 2001 | ISBN: 951-98680-2-x
ENQA (European Network for Quality Assurance in Higher Education) has in various contexts been actively involved in the process of follow up on the Bologna declaration. One implication has been a focus on the potential role of accreditation in quality assurance of higher education. A group of member agencies from the Nordic countries joined in 2000 in a common project to analyse the concept of accreditation and identify accreditation procedures and other practices, similar to accreditation, in the Nordic countries. The agencies involved were the Danish Evaluation Institute, The Finnish Higher Education Evaluation Council, The National Agency for Higher Education, Sweden and The Network Norway Council.
The project has resulted in a report that provides a clear account of Nordic thinking on accreditation and evaluation, but also contains a very coherent and understandable general account of the various issues surrounding accreditation and evaluation at the present time.
