Accreditation

The BTK University of Applied Sciences for Design is accredited by Berlin’s senate and received its institutional accreditation in 2009 from the German Council of Science and Humanities. Furthermore, all BTK degree programs are accredited by Germany’s Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ZEvA). 

  • Accredited by Berlin's Senate

    BTK has been accredited by Berlin’s senate since 2006. This state accreditation for private (non-public) universities is awarded by the Senate Administration for Education, Youth and Science (website only in German). The senate also performs an institutional quality check to review the program and examination regulations, the program system at BTK, and the individual concepts for majors in the bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, as well as the proposed research projects for the master’s degree program. 

  • Institutional Accreditation

    BTK has had institutional accreditation from the German Council of Science and Humanities since 2009. This council advises the German federal government and the heads of the state governments in questions regarding content and structural development of universities, academics and science, and research.

  • Program Accreditation

    At state-accredited universities like BTK, each new program of study has to be reviewed and accredited by a special agency that checks content and quality according to the Lisbon Convention. All the programs offered by BTK are accredited by Germany’s Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ZEvA). You can read ZEvA’s comments on the individual programs on the agency’s website.
