The Schedule for the external review of the PhD programmes are set
The external review process has been launched with the revision/development of the PhD programmes and SWOT analyses. However, it will officially start with the submission of the self-assessment reports by 11 HEIs. The self-assessment teams have already been engaged in preparing the reports and will submit the ready papers to the external reviewers by 15th of FEBRUARY 2017. The peer-review teams have also been established with involvement of EU partners, 2 local experts and 1 PhD students. The overall process will be coordinated by ANQA. The site-visits to HEIs will be conducted early in April. Next the reports with recommendations will be delivered to HEIs for revising the programmes.
These issues were discussed and agreed among the consortium during the first local meeting of the final year.
