The Hungarian Dance Academy operates according to the institutional documents as specified in the Updated Legislative Provision of Higher Education.
The basic institutional document is the Deed of Foundation, which includes public interest information in regards to the existence and operation of the Hungarian Dance Academy. The Deed of Foundation is issued by the authority that can modify it on the initiative of the institution. The Deed of Foundation or its modified version is then published in the Bulletin of Education by the Minister of Education.
The most important regulatory document concerning the structure and operation of the Academy is the Structural and Operational Regulation (henceforth SOR). This is the standard material adopted from the provision of higher education by the institution in question. The SOR includes each and every process to be applied in all regulatory, sub-regulatory issues determining the framework and order of the operation of the institution. Parts of the SOR are: Order of Structure and Operation, Eligibility of Employment and Set of Requirements for Students.
The Institutional Development Plan (henceforth IDP) is the basic document for the strategy of the higher educational institution. The norms, set down in the IDP, are not to be met necessarily, but are rather plans, ideas to be included in institutional applications. The Hungarian Dance Academy initiates its development programmes and investments in compliance with the institutional development plan. It can also realize capital projects by owing or having assets at its disposal.
The Hungarian Dance Academy aims at providing its students with high-standard knowledge that can be utilized and further developed in the labour market not only in Hungary but also abroad. In order to further this goal, the quality assurance system was set up at the Academy. In the Quality Development Programme, accepted by the Senate of the Academy, regulations, concerning issues on institutional management, planning, controlling, assessment, evaluation and consumer protection as well as the system of education and evaluation of teachers by students were introduced.
Higher education is pursued based on the educational and training programme. The compulsory part of this programme is the Sample Curriculum. This was elaborated upon by the Academy for both the undergraduate- and master’s degree courses according to the requirements outlined by the Ministry concerning training and output.
