ACREDITA PLUS

The promotion of the continuous improvement of quality in Spain has entered a new stage with the national process of accreditation for recognised degree programmes. Accreditation is compulsory pursuant to Spanish legislation (article 27, Royal Decree 861/2010, 2 July), in accordance with which the initial accreditation of recognised programmes and qualifications must be periodically renewed (accreditation) either from the date of validation or from the date of the previous accreditation.

ANECA has chosen to take the opportunity afforded by this new stage to go one step further in programme accreditation by offering programmes in certain disciplines from Spanish HEIs the possibility of being awarded an international quality label of recognised standing simultaneously with the national process of programme accreditation. This is the main objective of the new ACREDITA PLUS programme, namely, to avoid the multiplicity of processes so that degree programmes can obtain both national accreditation and a European/international quality label through best use being made of synergies between the two QA processes.

Within this context, ANECA have launched ACREDITA PLUS programme in two disciplines:

The Engineering -to obtain EUR-ACE® accreditation seal
