Although most of the national universities have similar scheme of studies for respective degree programs with minor variations but the quality of outgoing graduates from these universities is conspicuously variant. We need to accept, that most of the universities must work hard to meet the international quality criteria. It is the dismal situation, where most of our efforts needs to be focused. This is the only way to achieve value addition, international competitiveness and consequently, socio-economic upgradation. Seemingly, this idea became the founding stone of the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), formed by the HEC. It has evolved well organized policies with quantifiable parameters of quality, required to enhance the educational standards in Higher Education. QAA is leading this movement for assuring and enhancing Quality of Higher Education in the country.
QAA, is guided and advised by the Quality Assurance Council for framing requisite policies and programs. Establishment of QEC’s at all public Universities and Higher Education Institutions, is part of this process. QEC’s at the Universities will be headed by professionals, equivalent to the status of a Dean, and will be directly responsible to the Vice-Chancellor.
