AVAP is proud to officially annouce that is now listed in the EQAR Register (European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education). EQAR is the EHEA’s official register of Quality Assurance Agencies, listing those that substantially comply with the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG).
AVAP has achieved an important milestone in its history by joining EQAR. This achievement has been the result of years of work and dedication by AVAP. The entry in the EQAR register is a recognition of the quality and excellence of the agency’s work in the field of higher education evaluation and foresight.
EQAR is an independent, non-profit organisation that aims to promote quality assurance in higher education in Europe. To this end, it sets rigorous and transparent standards for the evaluation and accreditation of quality assurance agencies in higher education. Spanish regulations require agencies to be listed in the EQAR register in order to have full competence in quality management in higher education. From now AVAP will be the agency in the Valencian Community with full competences for the verification of new degrees, modification of study programmes and institutional accreditation, apart from those that had been carrying out.
AVAP’s entry in the EQAR register is not only a recognition of its work, but will also allow it to actively participate in the European field of quality assurance in higher education, which will provide new opportunities for collaboration and learning with other quality agencies.
We are fully satisfied with this achievement and would like to highlight the effort and dedication of the entire team that has worked to achieve it. We also reaffirm our commitment to excellence and quality in higher education evaluation and foresight in the Valencian Community.
