OAAAQA Accredits the Bachelor in Applied Geosciences Programme of German University of Technology in Oman

03 Jul 2024

Oman Authority for Academic Accreditation and Quality Assurance of Education (OAAAQA) has now completed the first Programme Standards Assessment (PSA) of German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech). This PSA has resulted in a summative decision about the meeting of standards and associated criteria which is now made available on the OAAAQA website.
GUtech submitted the PSA Application on 21 December 2023 and a Panel was formed to undertake the PSA process. The Panel comprised of experienced locally-based and international reviewers. During the Visit, which took place between 4 to 6 March 2024 at GUtech’s premises (including ‘Day Zero’, a day of Panel discussions before the interviews at the University commenced), the Panel spoke with over 38 people, including representatives of the governing authorities, staff, students and external stakeholders. The Panel also reviewed a range of additional evidence and Mandatory Materials.
The OAAAQA Board endorsed the resulting PSA Report on 10 June 2024 and the University has received a copy of that report. This report will not be made publicly available but will be circulated as a confidential document to OAAAQA Board Members and the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. 
The Programme Standards Assessment of GUtech’s Bachelor in Applied Geosciences Programme resulted in an Accreditation Outcome of ‘Accredited’.
