About the event

The ENQA seminar for agencies preparing for an initial external review, hosted by the Academic Information Centre (AIC), will take place on 27-28 September 2018 in Riga, Latvia.

The seminar is open to ENQA affiliates and other quality assurance agencies that are preparing to undergo an external review against the ESG 2015. The seminar will focus on the whole external review process, from preparation to follow-up. Participants will be given insight into the purpose and objectives of the review and will discuss best practices relating to the self-assessment process and how to maximise the benefits of the external review where future planning and agency development are concerned. Additionally, the seminar will offer a unique opportunity to learn from agencies that have successfully undergone an ENQA Agency Review during discussions in which some of the challenges in meeting the expectations of the ESG 2015 will be explored, and ideas on how to approach them will be exchanged.

While the seminar will mainly focus on preparing for an initial external review, it may also prove beneficial for ENQA member agencies that underwent their first external review against the ESG 2005 and which are now preparing to be reviewed against the ESG 2015.

The seminar will take place over two half-days, with the programme anticipated to begin at 13:00 on Thursday, 27 September and to conclude on Friday, 28 September at 13:30. Further programme details and practical information will be updated on this page.

The cost to participate is €220. Participants are kindly requested to book their own travel and accommodation.
