Quality Assurance

The demand for a link between the national qualifications framework and the national quality assurance systems has been expressed several times at the European level, for instance in the documents concerning the European meta-frameworks QF-EHEA and EQF-LLL.

The Swiss quality assurance system is primarily based on the internal quality assurance of the higher education institutions, but it also includes external quality assurance by the responsible bodies. The Swiss Higher Education Bill on the promotion of universities and coordination in Switzerland’s higher education sector (HFKG, German), stipulates an institutional accreditation, in the course of which it can be verified to what extent the nqf.ch-HS has been incorporated and implemented in the higher education institutions.
