Today the site-visits to the Vanadzor State University, University of Traditional Medicine and Police Educational Complex started. These 3 educational institutions are undergoing institutional accreditation.
During the site-visit, the expert panels will have meetings with the universities’ board of trustees, administrative leadership, teaching staff, students and alumnae, QA staff, self-assessment implementation team, employers, etc. The panels will also review the documents and resources, and conduct class observations.
After the external evaluation, the Accreditation Commission will make a decision on accreditation based on the expert report, the university's self-assessment and follow-up plan.
Note that VSU had received institutional accreditation for 4 years in 2015 and now has applied for re-accreditation. The UTM and the Police Educational Complex are undergoing accreditation for the first time.
