MusiQuE and EQ-Arts cooperate for the first time
21 March 2017
MusiQuE and EQ-Arts (the foundation for Enhancing Quality in the Arts) have signed their first collaboration agreement in order to join forces and jointly conduct a programme accreditation procedure at the Kazakh National University of Arts in Astana. The site-visit took place on 14-16th March.
The Kazakh National University of Arts in Astana has commissioned MusiQuE to organise a review procedure for the accreditation of 36 programmes: 19 music programmes and 17 performing and visual arts programmes. MusiQuE, while remaining responsible for the overall coordination of the accreditation procedure, has sub-contracted the review of the 17 performing and visual arts programmes to EQ-Arts.
The next step is the drafting of the reports, which will include a proposal on the accreditation of the programmes. Each Review Team will prepare a report, one for the music programmes and one for the visual arts programmes.
After a response by the institution to the first version of the reports and a possible adjustment of the reports, the latter ones will be presented to the MusiQuE Board for consideration and for the actual decision on the accreditation of each programme.
