Even though the remote work format had been partially remained during 2021, this year was full of different projects for AKKORK. Many quality assurance projects, which lead to professional-public and international accreditations of educational programmes in the largest universities of Russia, were carried out.

An important feature of this year was that almost all projects were carried out in remote or partially remote formats. The AKKORK management notes that, despite the familiar, but still unusual format, all activities within the framework of the projects were as effective as if they were held offline. This is evidenced by the fact that all projects were completed within a specified time frame.

Moreover, thanks to modern technologies, there is no need to be physically present at the university during the online visit, or to fly to another city, which, first, allows not to expose the health of experts to risks during the pandemic, and second, the remote assessment format allows attracting experts in their field from different parts of Russia and abroad. Moreover, the procedure of external assessment and accreditation can be held in short period.

In 2021, AKKORK continued its long-term cooperation with the Association of Managers. Projects of international and professional-public accreditation were carried out at Petrozavodsk State University (Petrozavodsk) and St. Petersburg State University (St. Petersburg), whose programmes were successfully accredited for 4 years.

The project at St. Petersburg State University should be noted, as the programs confirmed the high level of student training and the effectiveness of the education quality management system. Based on the results of the projects in 2017 and 2021, the experts emphasized that the programme’s management not only succeeded to remain its’ valid and relevant in the labour market but also to establish a system of continuous improvement of the quality of education through various monitoring tools and feedback from all stakeholders.

This year the AKKORK continued its cooperation with the ERA of Russia. A major project was carried out at the National Research University “Moscow Power Engineering Institute” (MPEI) (Moscow), within the framework of which 4 programmes were evaluated.

During a remote visit to MPEI, AKKORK experts noted the effectiveness of the practical orientation of the declared programs. As early as in the freshmen and sophomore years, students can apply their knowledge and skills in production, which later allows them to quickly adapt to the workplace.

Two programmes in the field of Psychology were assessed as part of the international review at the Russian University of Economics. G. V. Plekhanov (Moscow). All announced programs were accredited for a period of 4 years.

In 2021, AKKORK completed a large international project at the Samara State Technical University (Samara). Six educational programs were evaluated. As a result of accreditation, all programs received international accreditation for 4 years. They were also awarded the Chemistry Eurolabel® for 5 years.

This project is of great international importance since graduates of programmes that have been awarded the Chemistry Eurolabel® mark will in the future be able to enter Universities accredited in ECTN on an equal basis with citizens of the home countries of those universities.
