Abstract


This paper aims to investigate the impact of the adoption of quality assurance mechanisms in higher Education Institutions (HEIs) i.e. Universities in Jamshoro Education City (JEC). This analysis is based upon the data collected through various proforma utilized by Quality Enhancement Cells (QECs) to conduct self-assessment of degree programs offered in Universities. These proforma are part of selfassessment manual provided by Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC). To evaluate the impact of quality assurance mechanism on quality of education, the viewpoint of JEC’s students is investigated through in-depth survey and interviews. As per identified parameters, it is found that the HEC’s quality enhancement policy is not implemented at the required pace. Once the required standards are implemented appropriately then the quality of higher education in JEC can be enhanced drastically.
