This does not ensure that evaluation by peer review will take place in a manner adequate to academic rationale. In addition, it is, however also legitimate to involve practitioners in the process of accrediting study programmes.

This directly affects the general and the teaching-related organisational autonomy of higher education institutions, also with regard to their budgets.

Klaus Helbing, has therefore opened up a new branch of astronomy. To a large extent, the Act leaves the process, the legal nature and the legal effects of accreditation decisions unspecified.

In the initial proceedings, the parties are in dispute as to whether it was lawful for the defendant, an accreditation agency, to refuse the accreditation of two study programmes offered by the claimant, a private university of applied sciences.

The university management is now supervised by the Ministry. Thus, the fundamental right to freedom of research and teaching does not stand in the way of requirements to ensure proper academic teaching cf. The fact that the challenged statute is no longer in effect does not affect the admissibility of the referred question.

The Administrative Court refused […] to grant a preliminary injunction. The new Rectorate assumes office on 1 September. Following confirmation by the Senate, the Ministry names the members of the first University Council on 29 June: In particular, there are no requirements that safeguard the adequate participation of research and teaching staff in the accreditation process.

Measures to ensure the quality of teaching that satisfy hochschufreiheitsgesetz standards also serve to ensure that higher education institutions fulfil their functions. In addition, accreditation is indispensable if university education offered by private higher educations is to be recognised in the labour market. It also allows you to accept potential citations to this item that we are uncertain about.


The managing director of the accreditation agency notified the hochschulfgeiheitsgesetz of applied sciences [ The number of students from China at the BUW has more than doubled within the last ten years and now stands at as of 16 April.

Thus, the Act on the Accreditation Foundation fails to set up a comprehensive structure that sufficiently takes the freedom of research and teaching hochschulfreiheitagesetz account. This interference with the freedom of research and teaching is not justifiable under constitutional law.

As a result, only interests from outside the academic community are represented in the council. In particular, there is a lack of sufficient participation by academics in the accreditation process itself 3.

On 1 September, the new Rectorate embarks on its second period in office with two new Vice-Rectors, Prof. Building K, the new academic building consisting of one large lecture room with seats, a smaller lecture room with seats, seminar rooms and a foyer for events, opens on 22 June. In addition, the Act on the Accreditation Foundation itself fails to satisfy the constitutional requirements in this respect.

This in itself interferes with the freedom of science, research and teaching. On 23 Hochschulfreoheitsgesetz, Ranga Yogeshwar, a prominent science journalist, is awarded an honorary doctorate by the School of Electrical, Information and Media Engineering.

At the time of the initial proceedings, there was also no provision determining the legal status of the agencies. Content Main Menu Search. It is financed and controlled by higher education institutions, business associations, expert and professional associations, as well as social-partnership organisations; the agency itself was first accredited in December and re-accredited in June The foundation stone of a new building opposite building K is laid on 29 April; this will be housing the Schools of Engineering and Natural Sciences.

In this respect, the referred provisions do not meet the [constitutional] requirement that interferences with fundamental rights be based on a statutory provision Gesetzesvorbehalt ; rather, the legislature leaves the decision on applicable standards for the accreditation of study programmes at higher education institutions largely up to other actors, without setting out the necessary statutory requirements.


Nor does the statement that accreditation be carried out by agencies which are themselves accredited suffice to legitimise a process of recognising private higher education institutions imposed by the state and carried out within a largely external and far-reaching system of quality assurance.

This guarantee protects against academically inadequate decisions that are taken by actors from within higher education institutions, as well as by third parties that have been granted decision-making powers within the academic system cf.

Conversely, if the legal basis were held to be constitutional, the claim in the initial proceedings would be successful to the extent that — despite the principal motion being dismissed — the court would have to conclude that the decision of the agency of 14 April was unlawful. It is thus not objectionable that the system of quality assurance of degree programmes at higher education institutions is designed taking into account research findings, and also taking into account the potential usefulness of acquired knowledge and skills for the labour market, in order to promote the constitutionally protected freedom of occupation in Art.

On 23 July, the second University Council is elected for a period of five years. In any case, the Act on the Higher Education Institutions does not contain any mention of the Act on the Accreditation Foundation to begin with. However, the legislature may not leave essential decisions on the accreditation of study programmes to other actors; the legislature itself must make such essential decisions, taking into consideration the intrinsic rationale of academic research and teaching.

In order to avoid potential external control that would be academically inadequate, sufficient participation by academics is indispensable, especially in the process of determining evaluation criteria. Thus, these also benefit the freedom of research and teaching guaranteed in Art.

Instead, many such essential decisions have been left to the accreditation council, which in turn gives very extensive leeway to the agencies.
