Independent agency of accreditation and rating


Independent Agency for Accreditation and Rating (IAAR) is the first Kazakh full member agency of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA)

On the eve of 25th anniversary of Kazakhstan's independence, our agency has received an international European recognition and became the first national accreditation agency that has the status of a full member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA). This high evaluation of the IAAR, as a reputable expert organization, is a confirmation of compliance of the external quality assurance procedures to the European standards. Certianly, it is the merit of not only agency staff, but also the IAAR expert community, all stakeholders, which are actively involved in the accreditation process.

Thus, the IAAR has became the first Central Asian agency, which received a status of full member of the ENQA.

We sincerely congratulate all of our experts, academic community, members of the Accreditation and Expert Councils, education organizations, national and international partners and other stakeholders!!!

Breakthrough of the IAAR in ENQA could not happen accidentally, it was the result of fundamental and long-term reform and development of the whole Kazakhstan education system, which was one of the key goals of our President, Nursultan Nazarbayev, from the first days of Independence.

More detailed information of the IAAR membership is availabe on the ENQA website.
