Department of Strategy, Accreditation and Quality Management

 

The Department of Strategy, Accreditation and Quality Management is the direct successor of the Department of Quality Management System (QMS). The history of the division's creation is connected with the decision of the university management to implement a quality management system in 2004. Sh. Ualikhanov KSU was one of the first universities in the republic to receive a certificate of compliance of the quality management system with the requirements of MS ISO 9001 and supports this system to this day. In 2021, the university was certified for compliance with the requirements of the International Standard ISO 9001:2015 by the Certification Association "Russian Register" with the receipt of a quality certificate and an international certification network — IQNet.

At the initial stage, the purpose of the QMS was to implement the requirements of the ISO MS aimed at improving the quality of services provided by the university. QMS documents have been developed and put into effect to ensure the process of planning, management, evaluation of the quality of educational outcomes and educational processes at the Ualikhanov University.

But the realities of the time began to dictate new conditions for the development of education. Internationalization of the education market, increased competition contribute to the desire of universities to obtain certificates of the quality of educational programs by passing accreditation.

Kokshetau University named after Sh. Ualikhanov was one of the first in the republic to pass national institutional accreditation in 2009.

In total, 66 bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs have been nationally accredited to date.

In February 2019, the university successfully passed the procedure of institutional reaccreditation and specialized accreditation of 2 bachelor's degree programs (Accounting and Auditing, Finance) and 3 doctoral degree programs (Mathematics, Philology, History) for a period of 5 years in the Independent Agency for Accreditation and Examination of the Quality of Education "ARQA".

In May 2019, the university passed specialized accreditation of 17 bachelor's degree programs (9 OP, including General Medicine) and Master's degree programs (8 OP) in the Independent Accreditation and Rating Agency (NAAR).

As a result, the educational programs 6B02302 – Translation, 7M05301 – Chemistry, 7M01504 – Biology, 6B05102 – Biotechnology, 7M08501 – Agricultural machinery and Technology, 7M08102 – Soil Science and Agrochemistry are accredited for 5 years.

Educational programs 6B01707 – Kazakh language and literature, 7M01702 – Russian language and literature, 6B01701 – Foreign language: two foreign languages, 7M01703 – Foreign language: two foreign languages, 6B01504 – Chemistry, 6B01514 – Biology, 6B08501 – Agricultural Machinery and Technology, 6B08101 – Agronomy, 7M08101 – Agronomy, 6B08102 – Soil Science and agrochemistry are accredited for 7 years.

The educational program 6B10101 – General Medicine is accredited for 3 years.

In turn, the availability of national accreditation conducted according to international quality standards allowed our university in 2015 to undergo specialized international accreditation for 6 bachelor's and master's degree programs in the Accreditation Agency ACQUIN (Germany):

 

- 5B011900 Foreign language: two foreign languages (Bachelor's degree);

- 6M011900 Foreign language: two foreign languages (Master's degree);

- 6M060600 Chemistry (Master's degree)

- 5B080100 Agronomy (Bachelor's degree)

- 6M080100 Agronomy (Master's degree)

 

27 educational programs have passed post-accreditation monitoring based on the results of specialized accreditation of the NAAR.

In May-June 2020, the university underwent specialized reacreditation of 28 bachelor's and master's degree programs. 9 programs are accredited for 7 years.
