Kosovo Accreditation Agency (KAA) has successfully secured the support of the U.S Embassy in Kosovo for funding of the project “Increasing student participation in internal and external quality assurance processes in Kosovo”. The aim of the project is to encourage student participation in activities related to quality assurance which in turn contributes to the improvement of the teaching and the learning process. International and local experts engaged for the implementation of this project, have drafted a research report which provides a background, drawn from both theory and practice, grounding the Guidelines for student engagement in internal and external quality assurance of Kosovo Higher Education. In doing so, the research report is based on an international benchmarking analysis of best practice in Europe, a national diagnosis assessment of the KAA accreditation reports and the legal requirements in place, as well as a national survey conducted amongst more than 1000 students from both public and private Kosovar higher education institutions (HEIs).
