The Agency submitted its request for the fourth external evaluation process to ENQA and EQAR in 2022. On this occasion it has chosen to renew its membership through a more specific review process (Targeted Review), put in place by ENQA and EQAR IN 2021.
ANECA can undergo this new model of evaluation given that it has already passed 3 complete evaluations in the past. This situation presents a new challenge for the Agency, which will be one of the first in Europe to be evaluated using this new model of evaluation.
The Terms of Reference (TOR) agreed with ENQA y EQAR, define the scope of this evaluation process which is fundamentally based on ANECA’s programmes for the evaluation of education and institutions.
The self- assessment process has been carried out according to the considerations expressed in the self- assessment report, with the aim of proving compliance with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the EHEA approved at the ministerial conference held in May 2015.
At the meeting of 16 December 2022, the ENQA Agency Review Committee validated the external review report of ANECA, and approved the reconfirmation of ANECA as a member of this organisation, reaffirming the Agency's compliance with the 2015 European standards.
The Committee concluded that the report had been prepared in accordance with ENQA's Guidelines for Specific Reviews.
