DEVA reviewed positively by ENQA. 2019
The Board of ENQA, at its meeting of September 19, 2019, agreed to reconfirm the Andalusian Knowledge Agency-Directorate for Evaluation and Accreditation (AAC-DEVA) full-membership of ENQA, taking into account the external review conducted by the independent experts panel appointed by ENQA for this purpose. In this evaluation, the panel underlined DEVA´s staff professionality and commitment as well as the agency´s fundamental role concerning the Andalusian University System continuous improvement.
The external review process to reconfirm the AAC-DEVA membership in ENQA started in December 2018 with the provision of the self-assessment report, which includes detailed information on the agency compliance with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG 2015), a SWOT analysis and a proposal for areas for improvement. In April, from 2 to 5, 2019, the experts panel site visit to DEVA took place. During this visit the panel conducted interviews with the presidency of the Andalusian Knowledge Agency, members of the Governing Board, the Technical Committe for Evaluation and Accreditation, DEVA´s Director, AAC-DEVA´s technical and administration staff, national and international evaluators, students, Andalusian Universities Rectors and Quality Assurance representatives, academic and professional students´ counselling services officers and entrepreneurs. This review process culminates with the external review report and the decision issued by the Board of ENQA concerning the AAC-DEVA's application.
This reconfirmation of membership of AAC-DEVA in ENQA will allow to apply for the renewal of AAC-DEVA inclusion within the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR).
