In 2009, the University of Stuttgart started to establish a comprehensive quality management system for learning and teaching. In 2012, the so-called Stuttgart evaluation model (SEM) was reviewed and accredited by the Swiss accreditation agency AAQ.
In 2019, the University of Stuttgart was reaccredited. As a result, the University of Stuttgart is the second reaccredited university in Germany as well as the first reaccredited university in Baden-Wuerttemberg and among the TU9 universities. The accreditation is valid until 2027. This reconfirms that the University of Stuttgart has the adequate instruments and procedures to systematically maintain and develop the quality of its study programs in accordance with national and international standards.
