Inclusion of Kosovo Accreditation Agency on EQAR

The European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR) has confirmed the full membership of the Kosovo Accreditation Agency (KAA) for a period of 4 years.

The confirmation of KAA's full membership to EQAR follows the EQAR Board meeting held on June and comes also as a result of KAA's successful membership to ENQA.

EQAR is founded by the key organizations in higher education in Europe, the so called E4, as ENQA (European Network for Quality Assurance in Higher Education); ESU (European Students Union); EUA (European University Association); and EURASHE (European Association of Institutions of Higher Education). The European Register for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (EQAR) is the registry of the European agencies for quality assurance which have proven to have substantial compliance with the principles for quality assurance in Europe.

This achievement of KAA serves to our institutions of higher education, to students, to our society and to the state of Kosovo having into regard the importance and the advantages that KAA will have in relation to EQAR. KAA's full membership to EQAR confirms further the professional and independent work of KAA, and assures the students and institutions of higher education in the Republic of Kosovo that they are and will be equally treated in the European Area of Higher Education. https://www.eqar.eu/
