Membership

CYQAA values its collaboration with its international partners, which provides valuable insights in regard to the future of higher education in Cyprus and the key elements that will enable CYQAA to fulfil the objectives of its establishment.

At present, CYQAA is:
  • Full member of European Association for Quality Assurance (ENQA)
  • Full member of International Network for Quality Assurance and Accreditation Higher Education (INQAAHE)
  • Affiliate member of European University Association (EUA)
  • Full member of the European Distance and E-Learning Network (EDEN)
Simultaneously, CYQAA applied for registration to the European Quality Assurance Register (EQAR), which has already confirmed that CYQAA’s initial application for inclusion is eligible since the activities of the Agency are within the scope of the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG).  The Agency’s application to EQAR will be submitted along with ENQA’s external review report, by March 2019.
 
Upon ENQA accreditation and its registration to EQAR CYQAA will be able to perform external evaluation in EU countries where the legislative framework provides for the recognition of accreditations awarded by EQAR registered agencies.

Since quality assurance in medical and health professions education, is also a priority issue for the Agency, CYQAA officially informed the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME), of its intention to apply for recognition as an accrediting agency. WFME confirmed the Agency’s eligibility to do so and the WFME recognition panel is scheduled to visit Cyprus in June 2019.
