The international accreditation conference organized by APUI took place on January 11, 2018 at Novotel Warsaw. The conference aimed to inform Poland’s higher education institutions regarding international accreditations and how they can benefit from them in adapting to the current challenges faced by Polish universities. We are happy to hear that the participants were extremely satisfied with the opportunity to receive first hand information from experts of the most respectable accreditation instutions

What to expect?

  • Why is the success of the internationalization process strongly associated with the success of accreditation?
  • What threats await Polish universities that are not properly accredited but at the same time want to be international?
  • What is the accreditation process from the perspective of an accreditation institution?
  • What are the most frequent weaknesses of Polish universities from the perspective of accreditation institutions?
  • Why accreditation can be called an “admission ticket” to the first league of world universities?
  • What is the role of accreditation in assessing the credibility of a university in the international education market?
  • What other benefits, in addition to the possibility of increasing the level of internationalization, an accreditation provides?
  • What impact can accreditation have on the organizational culture and internal processes of the university?

Participant package:

  • certificate of participation for universities,
