ANECA's Externa Review 2017

evaluación externa aneca 2017

The Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assuranc e in the EHEA establish that quality assurance agencies should undergo external evaluation every 5 years.

The Agency's external evaluation process began in 2017 and, after a positive evaluation, in 2012 ANECA was again ratified as an Agency with full rights under the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), following which it was entered in the European Quality Assurance Register (EQAR).

In 2017, this Agency is evaluated again by a panel coordinated by ENQA, following the new procedure established in the new guidelines for reviewing quality assurance agencies published by ENQA. (Guidelines for ENQA Agency reviews, 2016).

The self-evaluation process has been carried out according to the considerations expressed in the Self-evaluation Report , with the aim of proving compliance with the new  Standards and guidelines 2015  approved at the ministerial conference held in May 2015.

On the basis of the review panel’s findings, the external review report was published, pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of the Agency as well as recommendations for ensuring fulfillment of quality standards.

Finally, ENQA Board granted Full Membership at its meeting of November 2017, confirming ANECA´s full compliance with the standards that maintain our Agency within ENQA.
