QAA has confirmed that, in spring 2013, it is to undergo an external review by an international team appointed by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).
ENQA promotes European co-operation in the field of quality assurance in higher education. QAA was a founding member of ENQA and QAA staff member, Fiona Crozier, is currently Vice President. Member agencies are required to undergo a review once every five years, with QAA last reviewed in 2008.
Early in 2013, QAA will submit a self-evaluation report to ENQA. A review team of experts will visit QAA's offices in late spring 2013. A findings report will be produced by ENQA and published in the autumn of 2013.
To inform the preparation of the self-evaluation report, QAA has held a number of workshops and meetings with QAA staff, QAA Board, QAA Student Advisory Board, QAA Sounding Board and other stakeholders, during October and November.
