Quality assurance

Quality assurance system is further developed to reflect the student-centeredness of study programmes

Based on the achievements of the previous Twinning Project “Support to the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan for further adherence of the higher education system to the European Higher Education Area” (implemented from 2015 to 2017), the system of quality assurance is further refined. In particular, standards for program accreditation will be developed to fully adhere to the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area with reference to the requirements on student-centered approaches.
