Information on the agency's work

NOKUT was established by the U&C Act in 2002 and became operative by 1 January 2003. The act lists NOKUT's main tasks and empowers the agency as the only official quality assurance agency for Norwegian higher education. NOKUT's mission is to contribute towards trust in quality both in higher education, vocational education at tertiary level and in recognised foreign higher education. This is done both by quality assurance and through analysis and development activities.
