In this study, a model offer developed by considering the legislations, current structure and the higher education system in our country after world's existing quality assurance systems were examined. Turkey's potential to be one of the leading countries in the field of higher education can be utilized by creating a well-functioning quality assurance system. It is a crucial point that the accreditation process, which is an important component of quality assurance system, should be conducted by independent accreditation bodies. On the other hand, unlike many Western countries, the establishment of the universities by law and being financed almost entirely by the central government in our country necessitate the existence of a central structure. The model presented in this study aims to reach a balanced solution and to create a dynamic structure. The model will allow significant progress and development in such fields as research and service because of directly affecting the functioning of higher education institutions as well as being mainly for providing quality assurance of education activities in higher education.
