As an accredited university in the tertiary education sector, ABPU is committed to the recognition of formal, non-formal and informal competencies. The importance of this basic understanding is particularly essential in the field of the arts, since here the most diverse forms of prior knowledge and often also non-formal education play an essential role, and thus the recognition of the most diverse forms of achievements made is also essential in the core process of teaching, taking quality assurance into account. For this purpose, various elements in the process of quality assurance have been implemented on a curricular and non-curricular basis.
