IQR - Internationalisation Quality Review presentation


IQR is a quality audit programme geared to assess the individual international objectives and need stated by the participating institution. The multifaceted and multi-national composition of the review team ensures that the visited institution receives competent feedback from international best practice in order to facilitate the formulation of explicit policy and focused action base on general objective of institutional development.


The IQR process is based on two main components, self-assessment and external review, as explained in the guidelines provided by the organisers.


IQR is jointly managed by IMHE and the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA). The fee is 17,500 Euros for members and 19,500 Euros for non-members.
