HCERES Academic Accreditation
The Bachelor program in law is fully accredited by the French High Council for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (HCERES) for five years 2020-2025.
HCERES Academic Accreditation The academic accreditation measures the quality of academic program, the clarity and relevance of its objectives, and the level of achievement of its learning outcomes. The HCERES accreditation process involves the evaluation of: the aims of the program, the position of the program in relation to the national, regional and international environment, the content and teaching structure of the program, and the management and quality assurance of the program.
By confirming that the PMU BA program in law satisfies the accreditation criteria, HCERES assures existing and prospective students, employers, and the public in general of the quality of the program. The accreditation process is also a source of guidance for the College on its continuous improvement plans.
