The article gives a comparative and analytical review of the national systems of accreditation of educational programs according to European, Asia-Pacific and Russian standards of quality assurance in higher education. The emphasis is on the structuring of the main provisions and features of foreign and domestic accreditation systems in the field of education. The main universal blocks of educational activity assessed at accreditation are identified: management of educational process, resources and provision of educational activity, competence and qualification model of a graduate. In accordance with the principles of international and national standards, the requirements to the accreditation procedures of educational activity are set out in the main (universal) diagnostic blocks. For the evaluation of educational activity during the accreditation of higher education institutions the criteria of achievements are given. It is noted that the most important criterion of quality of education at accreditation is the evaluation of educational achievements of students. Difficulties of evaluation of educational results and ensuring their comparability at the international level for understanding the quality of training of specialists in different educational systems are noted. The lack of reliable evaluation tools creates certain difficulties in accreditation. The most problematic is the development and application of evaluation materials with planned activities to identify the levels of competence of students and graduates.
