Abstract: The article discusses the results of the analysis of the accreditation indicators used in the quality assurance systems of Russia and Europe. The indicators of professional public accreditation of agricultural programs were developed based on the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) within the TEMPUS Project «Development of Public Accreditation of Agricultural Programs in Russia» (PACAgro). The indicators provide for the implementation of requirements and employers’ participation in the evaluation of study programs. The article describes a list of indicators and introduces the methods for their assessments. A system for the indicators’ assessment when conducting external and internal review during professional accreditation of study programs was developed based on the scale grading from 0 to 3 points.

Keywords: accreditation, agricultural programs, external and internal review, indicators, assessment methods
