This study involves the assessment of the quality management models in Higher Education by explaining the importance of quality in higher education and by examining the higher education quality assurance system practices in other countries. The qualitative study was carried out with the members of the Higher Education Planning, Evaluation, Accreditation and Coordination Council and Director of Higher Education and External Affairs Unit of the Ministry of National Education. Purposive sampling and snowball/chain sampling was done due to low number. The semi-structured interview form was designed in light of the theoretical framework as the data collection tool. The data was analysed through content analysis. The results of the study showed that higher education authorities are not able to perform their responsibilities with the current bureaucratic structure and major duties fall onto the higher education institutions in terms of quality management.
