AQUIB, as an external agency for the quality of higher education in the Balearic Islands, carries out the evaluation work for the renewal of the accreditation of the official study programmes of the University in the Balearic Islands. This process must be done before 6 years in the degrees of 240 ECTS, masters and PhDs, and before 8 years in the degrees of 300 or 360 credits.
The accreditation renewal process aims to verify compliance with the commitments made in the verification report and evaluate the results of the study programme, guaranteeing its quality and recommending, or not, the continuation of the study programme. These results will focus, among other aspects, on the verification of the acquisition of competencies by students, academic staff, the material resources and services that support the development of the title and in the analysis of the evolution of this results.
This process is organized in several phases:
Self-assessment: the university describes and assesses the situation of the title with respect to the established criteria and guidelines. The result is the Self-Assessment Report.
External visit: a group of external evaluators (panel of experts), appointed by AQUIB, analyzes the Self-Assessment Report and visits the center/s where the degree is taught in order to compare the information collected and issue a reasoned assessment regarding to the elements contemplated in the evaluation model. The result of this phase is the Site Visit Report.
Evaluation by the Comission of Study Programmes Evaluation: the AQUIB accreditation commissions will evaluate the Self-Assessment Report, the Visit Report and the rest of the information available and will issue the justified report proposal, which will be sent to the university so that they can submit claims within 20 business days. Once the claim period has elapsed, the accreditation commission will issue a Final accreditation report in terms favorable or unfavorable to the renewal of the accreditation, which it will send to the university, the Council of Universities, the Ministry of Education and the corresponding autonomous community or communities.
Once the report has been received, the Council of Universities will issue the corresponding resolution, no later than six months from the request of the University . Also, the Council of Universities will notify the University within 3 business days after having approved it, and will communicate it to the Ministry of Universities, the Autonomous Community or Autonomous Communities interested and the AQUIB.
