On the 7th of July 2016, the Agency for Science and Higher Education (ASHE) presented to the public The Analysis of the five-year cycle of re-accreditation of higher education institutions (2010 – 2015). This publication presents comprehensive information about Croatian higher education institutions and their activities and is the result of the first thorough evaluation of all public and private higher education institutions in Croatia (universities and their constituents – faculties and academies as well as polytechnics and colleges) which began in 2010 and was completed in 2015.

The public presentation brought together more than a hundred leaders of Croatian higher education institutions and members of the academic and scientific community who were addressed by Professor Jasmina Havranek, Director of ASHE, Professor Ivana Franić, Assistant Minister for Science and Higher Education and Professor Šimun Anđelinović, the President of the Croatian Rectors’ Conference in their welcome speeches.

The analysis will be useful not only to higher education institutions for comparison with related institutions but also to the overall system, as it brings together a number of useful recommendations intended for policy makers, higher education institutions and relevant bodies. Various positive changes have already happened, as emphasised by higher education institutions themselves. These changes relate to different segments of higher education institutions’ activities, from the management and internal quality assurance, study programmes, teachers and alike, and it is particularly emphasized that quality is recognized as a mechanism for sustainability and competitiveness of higher education institutions.
