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
