Indicate your accreditation status
Indicate all programme(s) that are currently in the ECTE accreditation processes and to which this APR refers. In case you have more than one programme operating at the same level, please include them in the list. It is a good idea at this point to verify your list with the ECTE directory on this website where your programmes are formally listed: https://ecte.eu/directory/
Institutions that only have institutional accreditation, leave this section blank.
Have there been changes in your legal status since last year?
Have you conducted legal investigation related to your formal status?
Provide the exact wording in your local language of your formal status in your country.
Do you consistently describe your formal status transparently in your publicity and formal documents?
Please provide a link to your website where you describe your formal status
Please self-evaluate your compliance to ECTE standard A.1.2 '‘Institutions… operate within national legal frameworks in their usage of academic terminologies and award nomenclatures. Institutions demonstrate understanding that ECTE accreditation does not serve national degree recognition purposes but is for the purposes of international comparability and quality assurance and development'
Please self-evaluate your compliance to ECTE standard B.2.1 – ‘Programmes that are not recognized by national authorities should ensure that the qualification nomenclature that is used is appropriate and not in breach of protected terminology.’
Please self-evaluate your compliance to ECTE standard B.5.1 – ‘The qualification resulting from a programme is clearly specified and communicated and indicates comparability to the correct level of the national qualifications framework for higher education and, consequently, to the Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area. If the qualification is not recognised by competent national authorities, this should be specified.’
Please provide the nomenclature that you use (in English and in your local language) for your ECTE accredited programmes.
If you are an alternative provider of higher education, please confirm that your use of qualification nomenclature is not in breach of local legislation about protected academic nomenclature.
Please complete the three reporting sections below. Schools with more than one accredited programme/cycle of study must ensure that the information regarding the different programmes is distinguished in the reporting. Schools that have received an accreditation or review visit during the academic year prior to the August deadline are exempt from this section.
3.1 - Major changes
Please provide a narrative report addressing major changes since the previous report or on-site visit.
3.2 - Response to requirements
If your latest Review Report contained requirements that you have not yet responded to, your accreditation will be held as 'under review'. You should respond to requirements in direct correspondence with the Accreditation Director. Please summarise your response to any requirements here.
3.3 - Response to recommendations
Please provide a narrative report of actions taken in response to recommendations in your last Review Report (this form was produced by the Visitation Evaluation Team during your most recent on-site visit and can be found here https://ecte.eu/qa/reports/).
3.4 - Planned changes
Should you be planning or discussing major changes in your accredited programmes or the addition of new programmes or delivery modes, please write a narrative describing these plans. All significant institutional changes are to be reported to the ECTE within one month and major programme reforms are to be discussed with the Accreditation Director before implementation.
4. 2021 Addendum (1) - Character education
Every year, the APR features special areas of additional focus, usually corresponding with the thematic analysis that have been carried out during the year.
In 2021 the ECTE conducted student satisfaction survey which revealed a discrepancy between student's expectations around character education (very low) and what happens in reality (quite high). Please help us understand this further and reflect on possible development.
Why do you believe students’ expectations around character education are low?
How do you publicise character education outcomes of your programme?
What do you do to meet character education outcomes in your programme?
2022 Addendum (2) - Using the Student Satisfaction Survey
In December 2021 you were sent the results of the ECTE Student Satisfaction Survey and invited to involve your institution to read and analyse the report at different levels within the institution (governance, faculty, students, etc). You can view these results again here https://ecte.eu/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/Student-Satisfaction-Thematic-Analysis.pdf. Please share your reflections and any actions taken as a result.
