Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA)
The Malaysian Qualifications Agency (Agensi Kelayakan Malaysia) or the MQA is a statutory body in Malaysia set up under the Malaysian Qualifications Act 2007 to accredit academic programs provided by educational institutions providing post secondary or higher education and facilitate the accreditation and articulation of qualifications.
MyQUEST is introduced to provide a wider access towards achieving a better quality of higher education system in Malaysia. The quality assessment is one of the identified Key Result Areas for the Ministry of Education (MoE). Department of Higher Education (Private) MoE has taken an initiative to develop an instrument to evaluate the quality of all registered private colleges in Malaysia. MyQUEST is designed to evaluate the quality of the colleges as an institution rather than looking at the specific course.
