The possibility of the accreditation of the universities in Artsakh was discussed during the meeting of ANQA director Ruben Topchyan and Deputy Minister of Education, Science, and Sport of Republic of Artsakh Armen Sargsyan.
The National Center for Professional Education Quality Assurance is a member of ENQA and is registered in EQAR. The universities accredited by ANQA are visible in the European Higher Education Area. Mr. Sargsyan stated that taking into consideration the recognizability of ANQA, it will be more rational if ANQA implements external evaluation in Artsakhi universities instead of creating a new local QA agency.
Mr. Topchyan presented to Mr. Sargsyan the ANQA statute on Accreditation, the processes of institutional and program accreditation. They discussed the internal and external quality assurance, the local and international experience.
It was agreed that for the upcoming training on QA ANQA will invite participants from Artsakhi universities.
