The round tables held with the members of the groups involved in writting self-evaluation reports of chemical engineering, computer engineering, Physics, Computer sciences, Foreign Language Teacher, Informatics/Math Teacher study programmes focused on advising the SER groups on how to improve the initial drafts of the reports and guiding these groups in preparing a self-evaluation report which meets the requirements of the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area.

Furthermore, vice-rectors of pilot universities responsible for the self-evaluation writting process gathered in the Accrediation and Nostrification Office on Friday to discuss outstanding issues related to management of the self-evaluation processes at higher education institutions.

The final versions of the self-evaluation reports are expected to be submitted by late June. The university teams will be regularly supported by visiting Twinning experts and the Accreditation Office throughout the self-evaluation process.
