IPM provides consultancy services to some of the Turkish universities in respect of accreditation procedures , by several international accreditation-agencies (member of the european accreditation-council) in Europe. Accreditation-System is organised in a decentralised manner, one of its characteristics is that the accreditation of study programmes is carried out by Accreditation-Agencies who in turn are accredited by the Accreditation-Council of the Foundation for the Accreditation of Study Programmes in Germany. The Accreditation Council – as the central decision-making body of the foundation – defines the basic requirements of the process and takes care that any accreditation is carried out on the basis of reliable, transparent and internationally recognised criteria.
