The Quality Assurance Agency in Higher Education (QAAHE), in fulfilling its mission and legal obligations, continues the work towards achieving its goal of full membership in ENQA.
In that regard, on 22 and 23 October 2020, with the support of the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), QAAHE underwent a mock external review process. During the two-day-long online visit, the international external quality assurance experts met the director and staff of QAAHE, the deputy minister for education, sport and youth, the chairman and members of the Board of Accreditation, rectors and vice-rectors of public and non-public higher education institutions, QAAHE’s external quality assurance experts, representatives of student councils, and representatives of internal quality assurance units in universities.
The aim of this ‘exercise’ was to gain experience for the staff of QAAHE and identify potential intervention points. Based on the forthcoming report of the international external quality assurance experts, QAAHE will devise a work plan for 2021 with the goal of fulfilling the criteria to become a full ENQA member.
