Das Präsidium und die Dekane entscheiden gemeinsam über die Wahl der Akkreditierungsagentur. Der betroffene Studiengang kann dazu zuvor eine Empfehlung abgeben. Das Qualitätsmanagement und die Dekanatsgeschäftsführung sollte darüber informiert werden.
The Presidium and the Deans together decide on the choice of the accreditation agency. The study programme concerned can make a recommendation beforehand. The quality management and the dean's office management (Dekantsgeschäftsführung) should be informed about this.
More information on the process can be found in the internal process management (Process map -> "Accreditation of degree programmes"): <link prozessmanagement/files/>www.uni-hildesheim.de/prozessmanagement/files/</link>
The publication of the certificate is obligatory according to the rules of the Accreditation Council. This is regulated in the "Rules for the Accreditation of Study Programmes and for System Accreditation" of the Accreditation Council. Drs. AR 20/2013, 1.1.9. (http://www.akkreditierungsrat.de/fileadmin/Seiteninhalte/AR/Beschluesse/AR_Regeln_Studiengaenge_aktuell.pdf )
"After the procedure, the Agency will publish the decision, the opinion and the names of the evaluators. In case of negative decisions, the Accreditation Council will be notified instead of a publication. The agency will ensure confidentiality without prejudice to its reporting obligations to the Accreditation Council."
The certificates are published on the website of the Accreditation Council, or, more specifically, in the Central Database of the Accreditation Council. www.akkreditierungsrat.de
The accreditation documents are sent to the agency by the responsible study program coordinators and/or the respective institutes. The number of copies is prescribed by the respective agency. Acquin requires 10 copies and a CD-ROM, AQAS requires 6 copies and a CD-ROM.
The change of the program name is a substantial change (§ 6 NHG). The change must be agreed with the accreditation agency. The name change must be stated in writing, study and examination regulations (incl. module handbook) must be submitted. The change should be coordinated internally (dean's office management, quality management, controlling).
