The 10th ENQA General Assembly took place on 17-18 October 2019 in Yerevan, Armenia. The event was organised in cooperation with the National Centre for Professional Education Quality Assurance Foundation (ANQA) and was held in the Tigran Mets Grand Ballroom of the Armenia Marriott Hotel located at 1 Amiryan Street, 0010 Yerevan, Armenia.
The programme of the 10th ENQA General Assembly focused primarily on the future of higher education quality assurance and ENQA’s role to play in these future developments. A consolidated version of the ENQA Strategy 2021-2025 was presented. Participants were offered a chance to present a thematic poster on various topics and share their challenges and best practices.
