Quality Recognitions

The autonomy of higher education institutions to define their mission, vision and values allows each entity to define and develop their own quality policy with which to exceed “common minimum” assessment processes established by the university regulations and commit specific levels of excellence that constitute “markers of identity” by which the institution can aspire to be recognised.

The National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA), as the public body responsible for promoting and ensuring the quality of the Spanish university system in the international context, rolls out not only “common minimum” accreditation processes but also orientation processes and certification with which to support institutional excellence strategies for each institution, helping to generate the trust of society in the institutions around the following areas of Sustainability:  Social, Governance and Environmental

Itineraries are established that facilitate the path to excellence, decided by each institutions and avoiding “assessment pressure”. The criteria for these recognitions are aligned with the assessment criteria of the different processes that ANECA develops in accordance with the current regulation.
