The Slovak Accreditation Agency for Higher Education (Slovenská akreditačná agentúra pre vysoké školstvo) was established by government act in November 2018. It will carry out external quality assurance for higher education in Slovakia.
The standards of the agency are expected to come into force early in 2020.
The previous Accreditation Commission (Akreditačná komisia) will continue to act in an advisory capacity during 2019.
