Acreditation Process

The accreditation Process for Albanian Universities

The accreditation process is a process by which a governmental, nongovernmental or private body assesses the quality of an institution of higher education in general or to a specific program of study, in order to formally recognize the fulfillment of minimum quality standards. The result of this process usually is to provide a status (a decision which may be: yes, no, or with reservations) of recognition or award a license to activity within a time limit. In Albania body that deals with the accreditation process is the Public Agency for Accreditation of Higher Education, established by the Council of Ministers no. 303, dated 01.07.1999, pursuant to Article 100 of the Constitution and Articles 10 and 13 of the law nr.8461, dated 25.2.1999 "On higher education in the Republic of Albania". In this context PAAHE deals with quality assurance of higher education which is a guarantee for a democratic development, economic development, harmonization of standards in higher education as a result of EU aspirations and cunning developments in higher education.
