Degree Programme Accreditation

The HQA accreditation process makes sure that the study programmes offered by the institution meet all quality standards of the HQA and the institution, and that the performance and skills of the students graduating from a specific course (learning outcomes) are consistent with the intended professional qualifications that are required by society and the labour market. Furthermore, it is certified that the study programme meets minimum quality criteria, as laid down in EHEA.
Accreditation is the passport students need to continue their studies in Europe and worldwide, and increases employment opportunities in Greece and abroad, since possession of accredited degrees is critical for graduates wishing to enter the labour market.
The HQA evaluation process for accreditation of the University of Crete undergraduate degree programmes began in September 2019, and is expected to be completed in the academic year 2019-20. 
Progress to date is as follows:
