Bachelor’s degrees: evaluation process
Conducting the evaluation
The department for the evaluation of programmes and degrees evaluates the bachelor specialities on the basis of an application as part of an approach per geographical site. The analysis particularly looks into integration into the job market and/or continuing chosen studies.
The process is as follows:
- submission of applications by institutions
- examination of applications
- post-evaluation and scoring meeting
- validation by the AERES of the evaluation report for the range of “bachelor’s degrees” offered by the institution and of the evaluation reports for each speciality
- dispatch to institutions of the reports for comments
- publication of the reports, with comments attached, on the AERES website.
- Setup of expert committees: appointment of leading scientific delegates, choice of chairmen and experts.
- Presentation meetings: meeting organised per site (presentation of the AERES, presentation of institutions and the "bachelor" process, as well as useful documents for the review).
- Review: writing of "speciality" draft reports by the experts, writing of the range of bachelor’s degrees draft report by the chairman, exchanges between the leading scientific delegate, the expert committee chairman and the experts.
- Post-evaluation meeting: meeting organised per committee (verification and harmonisation of the "speciality" and range of bachelor’s degrees draft reports).
- Proofreading, correction and validation: collective proofreading and validation of the draft reports by the department head.
