Quality assurance

Danish quality assurance includes accreditation of higher education programmes.

The standard and quality of educational provision in the Danish education system are assured by a number of elements, including:

  • Common rules and guidelines (curricula) specifying the aims, contents and duration of programmes and individual subjects

  • A testing and examination system using national boards of external examiners

  • Ministerial approval of the provision of education and varying degrees of monitoring in the different educational areas

  • Mandatory accreditation of higher education institutions by the Danish Accreditation Institution.

Private education institutions at primary and secondary level may operate without any state approval. However, if their students are to be eligible for state study grants, the institutions must accept an accreditation procedure.
