ENQA addressed the Prime Minister of Ukraine and the Chair of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine with a letter in support of NAQA independence

On Tuesday, September 29, Christoph Grolimund, President of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), addressed the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal and Chair of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov on behalf of ENQA with regards to the proposed changes to Ukraine’s national higher education legislation and the potential impact on the National Agency for Higher Education Quality Assurance (NAQA) and related consequences for Ukraine’s integration into the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).

ENQA draws the attention of the Ukrainian government to the commitments that Ukraine has made through being a member of the EHEA, in particular to aligning the national quality assurance framework with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the EHEA (ESG).
