The university that meets all standards shall meet the Standards stipulated by NIAD-QE.
If it fails to meet any of the standards, it shall meet the Standards on condition that it is confirmed, all the things concerning all the standards considered, that the quality of education and research of the university is assured to live up to the condition required of a university. Otherwise, the university shall not meet the Standards. Should the university be found not to have a system or a procedure for internal quality assurance, either of which is deemed to be a priority requirement, the university would not meet the Standards regardless of whether it meets other standards.
In the evaluation results, NIAD-QE explicitly identifies good practices and areas for improvement, in addition to the decision as to whether the university meets the Standards. Internal quality assurance is a priority item, and if the system functions excellently, this is reflected favorably in the evaluation results.
A university judged to meet the Standards is given the status of a qualified institution, and conferred a certificate and logo (see the samples).
