ENQA has published its message to the Ministers of Education in Europe who will meet in Tirana on 29-30 May 2024. ENQA highlights quality assurance as a prominent success story of the EHEA, while recognising that there is still work to be done, both in meeting existing commitments and in ensuring that our shared framework remains fit-for-purpose in the changing higher education environment.
In this context, ENQA calls on Ministers to take action on three key issues:

  • Ensure that national legislative frameworks allow quality assurance agencies to operate in compliance with the ESG
  • Enable international collaboration by reducing national-level barriers in quality assurance and higher education while enhancing transparency
  • Maintain the relevance and added value of external quality assurance by allowing quality assurance agencies to implement flexible and enhancement-oriented approaches
