EAALS Quality Assurance Assessment and Accreditation

Currently EAALS has procedures for the Quality Assurance and Accreditation of International Master Degree Programmes in the Life Sciences (for agriculture, forestry, food, natural resources, rural development and the environment).

EAALS procedures are set out in the EAALS Handbook for the Quality Assurance and Accreditation of International Master Degree Programmes in the Life Sciences (2012). 

The purpose of quality assurance and accreditation procedures is to support the enhancement of Master degree programmes.  The quality assurance of international Master degree programmes is based upon the Peer Review of a Self Assessment Report prepared by the single university or partner universities delivering the Master degree programme.

  • Part I of the Handbook is for Master degree programmes delivered by two or more universities, and

  • Part II for Master degree programmes delivered by a single university.

An application for the Quality Assurance Assessment and Accreditation of a Master degree programme should be made to the EAALS Secretariat.  After initial discussion, the EAALS Board will agree a contract with the contracting university for the Quality Assurance Assessment and Accreditation of the Master degree programme. 

The EAALS Board will then appoint a Peer Review Panel who will be responsible for conducting the peer review and who will be supported by the EAALS Secretariat. The Peer Review Panel will write a report for the EAALS Board who will decide as to whether to accredit the degree programme.

If the degree programme is accredited the accreditation will be valid for five years, re-accreditation will be required before the five years has passed or the accreditation will lapse.
