UGC-QAC, Sri Lanka is hosting the 15th INQAAHE Conference - 2019 in 26-28 March, 2019 at Bandaranayake International Memorial Hall, Colombo.

APQN Conference is also hosted in 29-30 March 2019 at Colombo



UGC has advised to transform all the existing study programs into the Sri Lanka Qualifications Frame Work (SLQF). This conversion carries credit during the reviews (both Program Review and Institutional Review). All the new Study Programs have to be based on SLQF and should obtain approval from UGC. Your cooperation in this regard is very much awaited.


Internal Review of the study Programs:

All the study programs have to have internal review to evaluate themselves strength and weaknesses to improve further. This is a short cyclic process and it could be done within the period of external review. Those recommendations of internal review could be considered to rectify the weaknesses and thereafter formal external review could be held in 5 year cycle. Further information can be obtained from IQAU office.
