Expert group to review Norwegian university accreditation


Government commits to review to improve transparency and assessment criteria

The Norwegian government has announced it will set up an expert group to review the requirements for higher education institutions to become fully fledged universities.

The aim of this planned reform to the accreditation process is to make requirements more accurate and the regulations more transparent, the government said.
