Abstract
The University of Prishtina began to rebuild itself after the conflict in Kosovo in 1999. However the protracted lack of resources and professional training had taken their toll, resulting in the deterioration of the quality of teaching and learning at the University. Although Kosovo is not a member of the Bologna process, the achievement of its goals has informed the higher education policy direction in Kosovo since the conflict. In February 2007, after legislation was already in place, the University of Prishtina Senate decided to set about creating a systematic quality assurance and enhancement system. This process was not without its challenges. This paper seeks to discuss the process and challenges of developing a system of quality assurance and enhancement in a post-conflict environment at the University of Prishtina.
