ENQA MEMBERSHIP – EQAR REGISTRATION
On November 14th, 2017, with a formal letter to ENQA, ANVUR expressed its interest to undergo the procedure for admission to the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), and at the same time to apply for inclusion in the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR). After receiving the confirmation of Eligibility from EQAR (March 1st, 2018), on the 19th of March 2018 ANVUR published on its website the document Terms of Reference. The procedures include the drafting by ANVUR of a Self-Assessment Report (SAR), published on September 26th, and the on-site visit by a panel of experts appointed by ENQA. The on-site visit took place at the ANVUR’s offices in Rome on November 19th-22nd 2018. The ENQA panel interviewed representatives of the University community and stakeholders (Site visit Agenda).
ANVUR expects to receive (and publish in its website) the Review Report of the ENQA panel by February 2019. It is likely that the ENQA Executive Board will be in the condition to take a final decision on accreditation when it meets in April 2019.
