Focus of external quality assurance

  • Institutional accreditation and evaluation of study programme groups.

Can higher education institutions choose a suitable EQAR-registered agency?

Generally yes, but based on specific national criteria and conditions:

  • Eligibility criteria for foreign agencies: the agency must be approved by the Estonian Higher Education Quality Agency (EKKA)
  • Conditions for the agencies’ work: the agency has to have experience in assessing study programmes or higher education institutions, it must have an international assessment committee (review team) and the assessment procedures should be transparent and in line with the ESG.
  • Recognition of review outcomes : treated in the same way as the evaluations carried out by the national QA agency (EKKA).
  • Further information/regulations: Bologna National Report (2015).

Can higher education institutions use the European Approach for the Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes?

  • No, the European Approach is not available to higher education institutions in the country.
