Issues that Have Affected Quality Assurance in the Albanian Higher Education System between 1992-2012

Mimoza Karagjozi- Kore


Academic staff, students and other members of society concerned about education have continuously argued the quality of institutions providing higher education in Albania. This research deals with an in-depth analysis of issues concerning Albanian universities. These issues are compared and contrasted between two different time spans; 1992-2003 and 2003-2012. A cross case analysis is used to examine several factors that affect the quality of universities such as: the criteria used to design an academic course, the qualification of academic staff, the quality of students accepted and the infrastructure of the buildings. Conclusions are encouraging as they illustrate that society is highly interested in improving the quality of universities. The increasing number of enrolled students, the high competition between universities and the constant discussion of quality issue by media and respective government authorities have all served as a catalyst for favorable change.
