The fitness for purpose of accreditation of study programs is one of the most important issues in quality assurance in higher education. Therefore, it is very important that the accreditation of study programs, and the evaluation of quality in higher education in general, is not a bureaucratic procedure but that it truly contributes to a qualitative step forward in the field of higher education. One of the ways in which the fitness for purpose of the procedure of accreditation of study programs is enabled is the development of different models of accreditation of study programs and their adaptation to different higher education institutions. The model of review of study program offers institutions the expert opinion of a peerreviewer from the narrow field of expertise. On the other hand, the cluster accreditation model is suitable for large institutions that have numerous study programs in various scientific fields. Quality assurance agencies are obliged to support institutions in developing a culture of quality and improving the quality of the study program within the accreditation process.
