The system was recommended for accreditation without conditions

System accreditation involves an external review of the school's internal quality assurance system for Teaching and Learning. The purpose of this procedure is to assess the suitability and effectiveness of the QM system in ensuring quality across all course options, as well as adherence to the formal guidelines. 

The purpose of the review is to ensure the robustness and reliability of processes and improved levels of transparency. It also aims to ensure that degrees are recognized nationally and internationally, and that processes promote the international mobility of students 

Over the past three years, the relevant stakeholders at Charité – teaching and research staff, as well as students –  have worked together to further develop all Charité-specific processes and parameters that have a bearing on the overall quality of teaching. Throughout this process, the certified accreditations agency AHPGS provided advice and guidance. 

In the view of the auditors, Charité succeeded in developing a comprehensive and extremely well-structured, bottom-up system of quality assurance, which manages to address the specific needs of stakeholders across general and subject-specific aspects of teaching. Aside from offering a necessary and sensible level of standardization across different degree programs, the system also offers sufficient freedom for innovative and individual approaches. The system takes into consideration the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (EDG), the guidelines of the Standing Conference of Ministers of Education (Kultusministerkonferenz - KMK), and the criteria of the Accreditation Council.
