IEP Final Raport

According to the legislation in force, every accredited university in Romania is subject to the external evaluation process every five years. In 2015, Emanuel University of Oradea was externally evaluated by the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ARACIS), a full member of ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education).

The main objectives of the evaluation, as mentioned in the report, focused on examining the content and quality of the educational process, study programmes, scientific research, academic, institutional, administrative-financial and managerial leadership structures, the integration of graduates in the labour market, the relationship with employers and with other universities in the country and abroad.

The result of this external evaluation process of the universities is materialized in: a) maintaining or losing the accreditation, and b) positioning the university in the hierarchy of accredited universities in Romania according to the rating obtained – „limited confidence”, „confidence” or „high confidence”.

In the ARACIS Council meeting of 17.12.2015, following the analysis and validation of the External Quality Assessment Report, Emanuel University of Oradea was awarded the „high degree of confidence” rating.
