Goethe University has been system-accredited since 2016. It can therefore decide independently on the introduction and further development of study programs. The accreditation decisions are the responsibility of an internal accreditation commission composed of university members from all status groups. The faculties are supported by an internal quality assurance system in their efforts to continuously improve the quality of teaching and learning. The participative and dialogue-oriented procedures, which are developed and carried out together with the subject cultures and status groups, are characteristic for the quality assurance.
