During the conference of the Ministers of Education in Tirana 2024 several important topics were discussed, but specifically the need to reinforcing the mobility of students was highlighted. I firmly believe there is no exchange without trust and transparency and as highlighted by the president of ENQA, Douglas Blackstock, in this speech during the Ministers’ conference:

“Quality assurance of trans-national education inside and outside the EHEA is an area that is often overlooked. There should be greater transparency on how the interests of students on trans-national education programmes are being protected. In particular, students should know that provision in other settings is of equivalent standard and quality of experience as in the provider’s home country.”

Quality assurance procedures protect the interest of all stakeholders in the Higher Education Systems – everywhere in the world.
