The Agency for Quality Assurance through Accreditation of Study Programs (AQAS) is an independent non-profit organisation dedicated for the accreditation of higher education institutions in Germany. It is supported by more than 80 member institutions, both higher education institutions as well as academic associations. AQAS was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. To date it has accredited more than 3,500 degree programs at universities and universities of applied sciences, including numerous programs outside of Germany. In January 2009, the German Accreditation Council granted permission to AQAS to accredit quality assurance systems of higher education institutions as well.[1][2][3]
