ASSCU is committed to act according the „European Standards and Guidelines “, developed by ENQA and further stakeholders in higher education and approved by the ministers in charge of higher education in the EHEA first in 2005 and further (revised) in 2015.

The core idea of an institutional accreditation by ASSCU is to assess if the quality assurance system of a university/faculty/college is in line with the ESG. ASSCU follows the main idea that an external assessment should focus on the sufficiency of mechanisms that an institution has chosen to ensure the quality of its program.
