Feasibility studies for new higher education programmes

Since the estab­lish­ment of uni­ver­si­ties of applied sciences, 3s supported the accre­di­ta­ti­on of new study pro­gram­mes through fea­si­bi­li­ty studies. These provide infor­ma­ti­on on the future demand for study places or the labour market

3s supports small and large education providers in the further deve­lo­p­ment of their strategic goals and study pro­gram­mes in the following ways: sta­tis­ti­cal analyses of the labour market, analyses of online job adver­ti­se­ments, inter­views with labour market experts and industry repre­sen­ta­ti­ves, market analyses of competing pro­gram­mes, and acts as advisor on the accre­di­ta­ti­on process of new study pro­gram­mes, for instance by deve­lo­ping skill profiles and defi­ni­ti­ons of the occu­pa­tio­nal domain.

Our analyses are an inva­luable resource which meet the highest quality standards and also fulfill the accre­di­ta­ti­on requi­re­ments for new study pro­gram­mes of uni­ver­si­ty of applied sciences according to the Board of the Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation Austria (AQ Austria).
