What are the implications of not submitting a study programme to the accreditation renewal process?

Although, according to the applicable legal framework, the initiative for the renewal of the accreditation of a study programme falls within the responsibility of the concerned higher education institution, the Agency has been alerting each institution about the study programmes that must be submitted each year to the ACEF or PERA process whenever they wish to apply for renewal of their accreditation.
In the event that the institution does not wish to renew the accreditation of a study programme and therefore does not submit the corresponding ACEF guidelines within the period indicated, the accreditation of the study programme ends at the end of the normal period of validity of the accreditation that had been granted. As of that date, the provisions of Resolution No. 53/2012 on the effects of non-accreditation of study programmes in operation would apply.
