VSMA Framework

The Framework for the assessment, monitoring, modification and accreditation of recognised degree courses (MVSMA) links these quality assessment processes (assessment, monitoring, modification and accreditation) which take place throughout the courses, in order to establish coherent links between all of them and foster greater efficiency in their management, while retaining the objective of improving the courses.


In order to be officially valid, EHEA degrees must undergo an evaluation process by the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency (AQU Catalunya): assessment. These teaching proposals must be prepared following the regulatory framework of the UPC and the AQU Catalunya guidelines. Once the course has been assessed, it is referred to the Government of Catalonia so that it can be implemented, in accordance with the established programming criteria and the available funding. Finally, the Council of Ministers establishes the official nature of the university degree courses and orders their inclusion in the Register of Universities, Faculties and Degrees (RUCT).


The assessed qualifications must monitor their teaching based on an analysis of data and indicators, and the preparation, where appropriate, of proposals for improvement that remedy the shortcomings observed between the design of the courses in the assessment and their subsequent implementation. This evaluation, carried out by the academic managers of the course, must be documented by means of a report that will act as a source of evidence for the accreditation of each degree. Modifications to the course may only be made if they have been recorded in the report.


Modifications to recognised degrees may only be the result of the monitoring process, and are therefore the natural and anticipated result of this process. For this reason, each course can only undergo the modification process once each academic year. The possible changes can be classified by type:

  • Non-substantial: minor changes that improve the degree course and are incorporated into the course report when it has to be modified.
  • Substantial: changes that entail alterations in the structure or nature and objectives of the teaching:
    • Allowable: changes that affect the structure of the course but do not entail any change in its nature and objectives. These changes are requested in the modification process.
    • Non-allowable: substantial changes that affect the nature and objectives of the validated degree course, which will take effect by applying for a further validation of the course and discontinuation of the course in its current form.


Degree courses will be subject to the accreditation process within six years of the initial validation (or previous accreditation), in the case of bachelor's and doctorate courses, and four years in the case of master's degree courses. A review report on the training programme is issued based on an evaluation report prepared by the academic administrators of the degree course and a site visit by an External Review Committee appointed by AQU Catalunya.
