Part of the accreditation process of FH study courses

This survey is a significant part of the accreditation process for bachelor, master and diploma courses with the relevant authority and needs to be carried out in accordance with the legal framework set out in the Hochschul-Qualitätssicherungsgesetzes (HS-QSG) Higher Education Quality Assurance Act and the accompanying guidelines for the accreditation of bachelor, master and diploma courses published by the Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation Austria.

The survey therefore checks the demand and the acceptance of planned further education offers in the specific economic environment. For this – apart from secondary research – the main focus is on interviewing businesses (managers, proprietors, heads of HR and personnel experts) as well as the main target group of the planned further education offers, namely students, graduates, etc.
