Finally, on 22th of November 2011 the University of Applied Sciences Münster accomplished the process of system accreditation as the first university of applied sciences in Germany.
The accreditation is valid until 30th of September 2018 and includes (almost) all study programmess of the university. Excluded are only programmes which are organized in cooperation with other universities, for example the teacher education programmes at the Institute of Vocational Teacher Education. These still have to target programme accreditation. In all other programmes the system accreditation replaces programme accreditation.
