The establishment of the European Higher Education Area has been vital in the processes of internationalisation of Higher Education, putting the focus on the need to unify the quality criteria of university education.
In this context, the Valencian Agency for Assessment and Forecasting, is currently undergoing a process of internationalisation that began in 2016 when it became a member of ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education).
ENQA’s mission is to promote the development of quality assurance in higher education by internationally representing Quality Assurance Agencies, supporting them nationally, providing services and facilitating opportunities for collaboration.
AVAP’s first objective was to become a member of AVAP in order to raise international awareness of the Agency’s work and to strengthen its links with the organisation representing the quality assurance agencies of the member states of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The next step after affiliation is to achieve full membership, which is currently being worked on. Challenges for the immediate future are to become a member of the European Quality Assurance Agency Register (EQAR) and also of the International Network of Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE).
