STEPS IN THE AAU AQRM APPLICATION PROCEDURE
- Institutional Applications and payments are received.
- The selected experts and 2 members of each university (Quality Assurance Director & one member of the Administration) that apply to participate in the AQRM institutional assessment process, attend a preparatory online Webinar.
- Universities complete the AQRM survey as part of the self-assessment process.
- AAU allocates and sends the completed AQRM surveys to experts selected for the AQRM Evaluation visits. The experts read through the AQRM surveys and if necessary, they raise questions to seek clarification from the universities in question.
- Experts do the verification/validation visits to institutions where at the end of their visit they give an oral report to the institutions and submit draft reports to AAU. The draft reports are sent to institutions for input in track changes. The institution returns the draft report to AAU which passes it on to experts who do the final report and send it to AAU. AAU then sends the final report to institutions.
