Within the framework of state legislation, once official undergraduate and master’s degrees are implemented, monitoring is regulated by article 27 of Royal Decree 1393/2007 of 29 October, which establishes the organisation of official university courses of study, and is modified by Royal Decree 861/2010 of 2 July:
- After initiating program implementation for the official degrees registered at the Registry of Universities, Centres and Degrees (RUCT), the ANECA or the evaluating bodies that Autonomous Community Law determines shall monitorfor compliance with the project that the University Council verified syllabus contains.
- To this end, the ANECA and other pertinent assessment agencies, working with the Ministry of Education and corresponding autonomous communities, will jointly draw up a protocol to include defining a minimum of basic common criteria and indicators for the syllabus monitoring procedure. For this purpose, the pertinent agencies shall previously carry out pilot experiences on syllabuses that have been in effect for two years.
The ACAP, as the Community of Madrid’s university assessment agency, has established criteria and drawn up the procedure for carrying out the monitoring process of the official degrees under our responsibility. This document will soon be presented to the vice-chancellors at Madrid’s universities and will be approved by the Agency Steering Committee. The procedure is in accordance with the ‘Protocol for the Process of Monitoring Official University Degrees’ by the University Committee for the Regulation of Monitoring and Accreditation (CURSA), which was approved by the University Board and the General Conference on University Policy in July 2010
