Higher Education








The sixth ENQA General Assembly took place on 23 October 2015 in Dublin to mark the 15th anniversary of ENQA’s activity. On this occasion, ENQA’s contribution to the establishment and development of EHEA was considered as well as ENQA’s cooperation with other E4 Group members. The Assembly adopted new Board and vice-president and adopted 2015 Statutes, Activities Report and Financial Statements. The Assembly was hosted by the Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI).

This year’s ENQA General Assembly was preceded by a General Assembly forum held on 22 October 2015. Participants in the forum discussed the adjustments made by European quality assurance agencies and higher education institutions to the new version of the Standards and Guidelines adopted in May 2015. The discussion was opened by Teresa Sánchez Chaparro who gave a presentation titled Possibilities with the revised ESG and working with them as the ENQA membership criteria. Participants learned about the outcomes of the Erasmus Mundus project Quality Assurance of Cross-border Higher Education (QACHE) aimed at building a common European framework of quality assurance of cross-border higher education – CBHE. Its goal was also to encourage the agencies to cooperate on these issues as well as to promote European system of higher education in other parts of the world. European colleagues learned about the position of the accreditation bodies in the USA, their examples of good practice and the challenges they face. President of the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education NEASC Barbara Brittingham gave a presentation titled Issues and Trends in Quality Assurance in the US.
