IFLA Europe School Recognition Procedure

For any request for IFLA Europe recognition of a programme, the following procedure will be applied:
- University teaching
Landscape Architecture Bachelor and Master level programme, which is interested in IFLA Europe Recognition, should in the first instance contact the relevant National Association and ask for support to the application.The school/university must then prepare necessary documents which will provide detailed information about the school, degree, degree contents and information about the teachers.

The following documents need to be prepared and provided by the University:
Form E4_IFLA Europe Schools Checklist_V2017 (see document here below)
Form E5 IFLA Europe/ECLAS minimum requirements
- Appendix 1 Contents of the degree, curriculum and of the individual modules/courses of the program translated in English.
Appendix 2 – the CVs of the teaching staff is very central in order to get the information about their professional status and degrees.
Recommendation letter from National Association.

Once the University fills in the necessary documents, prepares IFLA Europe School check-list and provides to the National Association (NA) all the required material, the University must ask relevant National Association to provide Letter of Support/recommendation to IFLA Europe to recognise the programme.

The next step is to send the application with all accompanying documents to IFLA Europe Vice President for Education with copy to IFLA Europe Secretariat

Vice President for Education will review received documents and will then arrange the assessment by the School Recognition Panel which will verify the teaching structure and the substance, completeness and effectiveness of the concerned programmes. Based on the assessment by the School Recognition Panel, IFLA Europe may ask for additional information and clarification or may decide to provide IFLA Europe Recognition for a five-year period.

Once a programme fulfilled all necessary IFLA Europe recognition requirements, IFLA Europe provides Certificate of Recognition for a period of 5 years together with a logo. IFLA Europe Recognition is valid for 5 years after which University should apply for a re-recognition process
