II Global Study on Trends in Tertiary Education Quality Assurance Internal and External QA: surveys launched

18 October 2023

The International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) Secretariat has launched both the External Quality Assurance Providers (EQAPs) and Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) of Tertiary Education Institutions surveys, which will collect data for its II Global Study “Global Trends in Tertiary Education Quality Assurance: Internal and External QA.”

Launched by UNESCO as a series of cyclical scoping studies on external quality assurance, INQAAHE inherited this decade long tradition in 2018 by turning it into its flagship project – Global Trends in Tertiary Education Quality Assurance: Internal and External QA.

As its flagship project, INQAAHE has committed to deliver the Global Trends on a cyclical basis and by closely collaborating with regional QA networks, university associations and lead tertiary education experts.

The I Global Study, published in 2020 by Brill|Sense, proved to set firm grounds for understanding trends, challenges, identifying opportunities, hence building an empirical historical base for quality assurance in tertiary education globally and benefiting education communities. The II Global Study, launched last year, is planned to be published as a book in 2025 – an open source to ensure wider and deeper benefits.

The survey is addressed both to external quality assurance providers and internal quality assurance of tertiary education institutions. The survey is multilingual, allowing each respondent to pick their preferred language from English, French, Arabic, Russian, Chinese and Portuguese.

The estimated time to complete the questionnaire is 20 minutes. The deadline to participate is 17 November 2023.
