Quality Assurance


To fill the vacuum created by the expanded demand and the states lack of expanded resources, different kinds of providers emerged in both public and private sectors. This raises concerns about maintaining the quality of higher education, essential for the sustainable development of countries and for protecting the interests of different stakeholders, including most importantly, the students, who are the future leaders of the countries.

Accreditation has become an important instrument for quality assurance in higher education around the world.
