Receipt of  Application Institutional Response Evaluation Outcome

The evaluation panel or the evaluator(s) (senior subject experts within the area) produce a report using the accreditation criteria and make a recommendation regarding the accreditation of the programme. A recommendation writer then writes a summary of the evaluator recommendation on behalf of the Directorate.

Three possible recommendations can be made:

  • accredited 
  • accredited with conditions 
  • not accredited 

The report, and a recommendation from the Accreditation Directorate, is submitted to the Accreditation Committee which makes a recommendation to the HEQC. This recommendation serves at the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) for a final recommendation. Outcomes of the accreditation process are communicated to the institution. The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and SAQA are notified of the outcomes in the case of full accreditation or accreditation with conditions (without any prior to commencement conditions).

The Institution is reminded that, in order for it to enrol students as a private provider of higher education, the following three conditions must at all times be fulfilled:

  • Registration of all qualifications with the South African Qualification Authority (SAQA) on the NQF;  
  • Accreditation of all higher education learning programmes by the HEQC; 
  • Registration as a private higher education institution and registration of all programmes by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). 

The Institution is reminded that, in order for it to enrol students as a public provider of higher education, the following three conditions must at all times be fulfilled:

  • Accreditation of all higher education learning programmes by the HEQC; 
  • Approval of the programme by the Department of Higher Education and Training to form part of the Institution’s PQM.
