Accreditation in Austria

Private universities and FH require accreditation as a prerequisite for state recognition. In accrediting a HEI, AQ Austria certifies that they have met the prerequisites for accreditation. Apart from the doctoral studies of the Danube University Krems, which according to section 23 HS-QSG require programme accreditation, public universities are not required to be accredited.

Accredited private universities and FH as well as accredited degree programmes bear the AQ Austria quality seal.
