Higher Education Commission (HEC) in Pakistan

Since 2001, the higher education sector in Pakistan has undergone a dramatic renaissance. The realization of the Government of Pakistan of the importance of higher education in contributing to sustainable socio-economic development, as well as poverty reduction, stimulated a chain of events that led to the establishment of the Higher Education Commission. Founded by Presidential Ordinance on September 11, 2002, following the recommendations of the 'Task Force on Higher Education', the Higher Education Commission inherited a higher education system having a myriad of problems. While concrete progress has been made in improving the state of higher education, an impact will only be possible if the reform process that has been initiated is sustained, supported and strengthened.

Asia Pacific Quality Network (APQN)

The Asia Pacific Quality Network (APQN) has been developed with the purpose of serving the needs of quality assurance agencies in higher education in a region that contains over half the world's population.
This is a fast-growing region, with an increasing appetite for education and with growing mobility of students and providers to meet that need. In turn, this makes it a region of growing and developing quality assurance agencies that needs to be able to deal with public and private providers, and with education and students that cross national borders. APQN is already helping to build alliances between agencies, and assisting countries/territories that do not have a quality assurance agency of their own. The APQN has been developed through support from various sources, especially support from the World Bank and UNESCO.

European Association for Quality Assurance

The European Network for Quality Assurance in Higher Education was established in 2000 to promote European co-operation in the field of quality assurance. In November 2004, the General Assembly transformed the Network into the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA). The idea for the association originates from the European Pilot Project for Evaluating Quality in Higher Education (1994-95) which demonstrated the value of sharing and developing experience in the area of quality assurance. Subsequently, the idea was given momentum by the Recommendation of the Council (98/561/EC of 24 September 1998) (pdf) on European co-operation in quality assurance in higher education and by the Bologna Declaration of 1999. The European Commission has, through grant support, financed the activities of ENQA since the very beginning.
On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, ENQA published an anniversary publication, "ENQA: 10 years (2000-2010) - A decade of European co-operation in quality assurance in higher education".
