The AHPGS provides services within international reviews, including the implementation of institutional audits, by means of which the quality standards of higher education institutions (HEI’s) or parts of HEI’s (e.g. faculties) can be verified. Institutional audits examine various aspects of the institution, such as planned and current study programs, infrastructure, organizational and management structure.
The objective of the institutional audit performed by the AHPGS is to provide HEI’s with the possibility of improving their internal mechanisms and quality management processes. The AHPGS determines whether and to what extent higher education structures and control functions serve to achieve the set aims.
The procedure also provides a organizational tool for the management of the HEI and can be used as a non-binding precursor to institutional accreditation or system accreditation, as well as to increase competitiveness.
