The role of EUROPEAN QUALITY ASSURANCE REGISTER IN HIGHER EDUCATION is to provide clear and reliable information on credible and legitimate quality assurance agencies operating in Europe, through decisions of the Register Committee. EQAR’s objectives are to:
- help to increase trust in and recognition of quality assured higher education institutions and their qualifications;
- provide a basis for governments to recognise agencies from the Register and their findings or decisions;
- provide a means for higher education institutions to choose any agency from the Register;
- reduce opportunities for “accreditation mills” to gain credibility.
