The Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ARACIS) was established in 2005 and is an autonomous public institution, of national interest, whose main mission is the external evaluation of the Romanian higher education’s quality, at the level of study programmes, as well as from the institutional point of view.

As of September 2009, ARACIS is a full member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education – ENQA and is registered in the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education - EQAR.

The agency’s strategy reflects the mission assumed by ARACIS in order to constantly assure and improve quality in the Romanian higher education, as well as its own activity, and may be described by the following major objectives:

•    improving the external evaluation methodology, in full compliance with the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education - ESG;

•    increasing the role of students and employers, as final beneficiaries, within the process of evaluation and assurance of education quality;

•    creating a quality culture in the Romanian higher education;

•    establishing a permanent partnership with all institutions in the national higher education system (MECTS, CNCSIS, CNFIS, ACPART) as well as with the economic-social environment, in order to correlate higher education with the labour market.

The Agency is carrying out its activity according to the best international practices, which are taken in its own Methodology and whose implementation is focused towards quality assurance and evaluation of the Romanian higher education, as part of the European Higher Education Area.


Following modifications of ARACIS procedures by the provisions of the Law of National Education No. 1/2011 regarding evaluation of master studies domains the preliminary ”Substantive Changes Report” sent by ARACIS to EQAR (in English) can be found on the webpage
