A precondition for application is that an already functioning national accreditation system is in place which is in conformity with the Euro-Inf Framework Standards and Accreditation Criteria for Informatics Programmes.
More information on how to apply for authorisation is available in the Standards and Guidelines for agencies applying for authorisation to award the “Euro-Inf Bachelor” and “Euro-Inf Master” quality labels.
