The HQA was granted membership to the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education- ENQA in June 2015, and to the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education - INQAAHE in 2014, thus establishing its position at European and international level.
The HQA has been an affiliate member of ENQA since 2007. Following the completion of the self-evaluation report, the HQA applied to ENQA for membership (Article 74 par. 1 of Greek Law 4009/2011). An external evaluation followed, led by an ENQA experts committee in January 2015. During the review, the ENQA committee met with high-ranking administration officials, the rectors and/or vice-rectors and the presidents of the institutions and the QAUs, as well as with external evaluators of academic units, and representatives of students and stakeholders.
In its capacity as a member to these networks, the HQA becomes actively involved in ENQA bodies and decision-making; it is also called upon to meet new challenges by taking part in a continuous and constructive dialogue on current trends and developments taking place in the field of quality assurance in higher education.
