Common African Quality

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 02 January 22 2019

January 2019

In the HAQAA initiative (Harmonisation of African Higher Education Quality Assurance and Accreditation) a publication is now available on African Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education ( ASG-QA).

The document identifies 13 standards for internal quality assurance, 7 standards for external quality assurance, and 9 standards for the internal quality assurance of the QA agencies. When looking at them in some detail, most resonate with common sense. But bringing them together in one comprehensive Handbook offers opportunities for more standardisation among universities in Africa and may help the argument of advocates for Quality Assurance in the various universities and HE systems of the continent.
