Mapping report

Read this in: French

This mapping study covers the five African sub-regions and presents the existing standards and guidelines for internal QA, external QA, QA of Open and Distance Learning, and QA of quality assurance agencies. The collected data is aimed at incorporating the existing work on QA in Africa into the African Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance, so as to foster a common continental framework in QA and enhanced quality culture in higher education, based on what already exists.

Map of countries with national standards and guidelines for internal quality assurance (marked orange).

Countries that are coloured green are using standards and guidelines that are provided by regional associations and do not have their own standards and guidelines for internal QA. Countries that are coloured yellow are countries with national authority in QA, but no standards and guidelines have been found (not even the use of the regional ones).
