INTERNAL QUALITY ASSURANCE UNIT (IQAU)
Providers of higher education have a primary responsibility for the quality of their provision and its assurance, and as such, quality assurance must be a continuous and an on‐going process. Though the top management may set policy and priorities, quality assurance is the responsibility of everyone in an educational institution.
Quality assurance systems in higher education established in many countries comprise of two basic components: an internal component and an external component. Internal quality assurance refers to internal processes that an institution has developed in order to monitor and improve the quality of their students’ learning experience and ensure achievement of established goals, objectives and standards.
Quality assurance (planned and systematic review process of an institution or educational program to ensure that acceptable standards of education, scholarship, and infrastructure are being maintained and enhanced) needs to be a continuous, on‐going process. Everyone working in an institution must take responsibility for building it into their day‐to‐day, routine activities. This can be brought about only through internal QA. Hence, internal QA is considered as the corner stone of QA in higher education.
