Quality Assurance and Recognition

Quality Assurance and Recognition

Before committing to studying in Germany it is advisable to check that the qualification you would be working towards would be valid in your country. The National Higher Education Institution of your country can assist you with working out the validity of qualifications and therefore whether or not you wish to spend time and money obtaining them.

In Germans higher education, there is no system for institutional or program accreditation, only official recognition. Presently, universities and four-year vocational higher schools derive their legitimacy through laws and decisions of Parliament, while two-year vocational schools are established by the Council of Higher Education.
