Reports prepared according to these reports, containing quantitative and qualitative evaluations of higher education institutions, are shared with the public by YÖK.
  • Every year, YÖK publishes the "Foundation Higher Education Institutions Report", which includes academic, administrative, and financial data on foundation higher education institutions. These reports, which include quantitative and qualitative evaluations of foundation higher education institutions, are shared with the public by YÖK. Quality assurance of undergraduate programs in higher education is provided according to the "Procedures and Principles for Providing Quality Assurance of Higher Education Diploma Programs":

1. Design and Approval of Curriculum:

1.1. YÖK determines the minimum standards and criteria required to open undergraduate departments and programs in higher education institutions.
