Søknad om akkreditering av bachelorstudium i Data Science – Noroff University College

NOKUTs tilsyn med norsk høyere utdanning omfatter evaluering av institusjonenes interne system for kvalitetssikring av studier, akkreditering av nye, og tilsyn med etablerte studier. Universiteter og høyskoler har ulike fullmakter til å opprette studietilbud. Dersom en institusjon ønsker å opprette et studietilbud utenfor fullmaktsområdet sitt, må den søke NOKUT om dette.
