Comenius University’s rector comments on withdrawal of course accreditation

None of the 32 courses in which accreditation was withdrawn from Comenius University in Bratislava had anything to do with quality of the programmes but concerned only changes in the accreditation criteria, the university's rector, Karol Mičieta, told the TASR newswire on August 4. Mičieta was speaking in response to reports that the Education Ministry has withdrawn accreditation from 71 university courses across Slovakia over the past year. Comenius University topped that list with 32 courses losing accreditation, followed by the Slovak Technological University in Bratislava (11 courses) and Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice (eight).

The remaining 750 courses at Comenius University, Slovakia's largest university, are running successfully, Mičieta said.

The rector noted that in the past a single guarantor was able to provide guarantees to several courses. "After the criteria were changed so that guarantors couldn't provide guarantees for several courses, faculties couldn't always fill the positions with new guarantors," he said.
