ENQA Seminar 2018 – Quality Assurance in the European Context

14 June 2018-15 June 2018 All Day

About the event

ENQA organised a seminar on the European dimension of quality assurance, taking place on 14-15 June 2018 at the University Foundation, located at Rue d’Egmont 11, 1000 Brussels, Belgium. The seminar was open to all, but it was primarily geared towards new staff of QA agencies or others with less knowledge or experience working in quality assurance at the European level.

The programme informed participants about relevant topics such as the Bologna Process, the European Commission’s priorities concerning quality assurance and higher education, the role of the main stakeholder bodies in the European Higher Education Area, the implementation and use of the Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG), and key issues of quality assurance in practice. Participation was open to ENQA members, affiliates, and other interested stakeholders.
