The AUN-QA Assessment at Programme Level for Ph.D. Programmes was another pressing matter for AUN-QA Assessors. During the AUN-QA Assessors’ Meeting 2020, Prof. Ir. Dr. Shahrir Abdullah, Deputy Chairperson of AUN-QA Council, updated the assessors on the AUN-QA directions to assess Ph.D. programmes throughout the region. As doctoral degree programmes require more delicate interpretations of the AUN-QA Criteria, the assessors were informed of the suggested approach to review Self-Assessment Reports and other relevant documents and to utilize the AUN-QA criteria for both research and professional doctoral degrees in future AUN-QA Assessments. AUN-QA, as a leading regional organization in Quality Assurance of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), will continue to improve efficiencies in its operation for the betterment of HEIs and Human Resources in the ASEAN region.
