|Abstract:||In the Middle East region, the higher education sector has been extended rapidly and the importance of quality assurance institutions has been increasingly recognized. In many countries, external quality assurance authorities have been established to assess the quality of higher education institutions. In this stream, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) was established in 1999 for the purpose of licensing institutions and accrediting programs. However, federal universities are not subject to the accreditation by CAA and construct their own quality assurance systems. This paper discusses the development of quality assurance in the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU), the university established for the first time in UAE, as a case of a federal university. As a result of analysis, while UAEU established Institutional Effectiveness and Planning Support Unit (IEPSU) for Institutional Research of UAEU, each program thinks highly of accreditation from international professional accreditation organizations because of their reputation. And in 2013, the implementation of Periodic Program Review (PPR) is discussed and intended for the university to assess the quality of each program along the standards of learning outcomes in Qualification Framework Emirates (QFEmirates), a qualifications framework developed as a device to integrate the quality of post-secondary education. This shows the movement from autonomy of each program and faculty to integration of quality at the university level and soft integration of the quality of higher education in UAE through QFEmirates.|
