IQAA ACADEMIC EXPERT SELECTION CRITERIA
The nomination and appointment of external experts are carried out independently by the Agency on the basis of a database, regardless of third parties, such as universities or government agencies. IQAA ensures that the members of the expert groups are competent and free from conflicts of interest. The candidates of experts are approved by the relevant Accreditation Committee and then appointed by the order of the President of the Agency. The accreditation committees make their suggestions for updating the existing database of experts by specialty, as well as for selecting experts for the examination of reports on the self-assessment of universities/educational programs and the external audit procedure.
