The assessment provides grounds for "revoking the authorization to deliver studies and carry out activities related to studies", SKVC said.

The EHU has 14 days to appeal the decision to a commission appointed by the education and science minister and 30 days to contest it in a court.

The EHU's performance was evaluated this year because it received a negative assessment after an earlier review in 2014 and was issued only with a three-year accreditation.

The latest report gives a negative assessment to the EHU for strategic management and science/arts.

SKVC said last week that it had given a repeated negative assessment to the Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences (LEU).
