Quality Assurance in Higher Education


Luxembourg does not have a national accreditation organisation and operates mainly with foreign EQAR-registered agencies.

  • Higher education institutions operating in Luxembourg have their programme and institutional evaluation carried out by a foreign EQAR-registered agency.
  • The University of Luxembourg has a 'self-accrediting status' and is evaluated every four years by a foreign EQAR-registered agency.
  • The short cycle higher education programmes are accredited by the accreditation committee.
