High quality higher education is of utmost importance for students, institutions and society. An education of high quality provides the right tools for students to meet future challenges. A high quality higher education system is characterized by removing all obstacles to access, and facilitating progress and completion; implementing a student-centred approach to learning and fairly assessing students. This system must also be braced by adequate student support services; ensuring links between learning, teaching and research activities; individual, social and civic training for responsible and active citizens; mobility opportunities; academic freedom; and where students are considered full members of the academic community and competent, constructive partners.
ESU believes that the quality of higher education should be one of the highest priorities in the debates within the European higher education society. High quality and accessibility are two sides of one coin. It is of the highest importance that all higher education is accessible and of high quality in order to give the best possible conditions to enter and complete higher education.
The most rapidly developing trend in higher education is a transition to the online delivery of instruction by universities around the world. Academic Partnerships (AP) serves almost 40 state institutions, making AP the largest representative of public universities’ online learning in the United States. AP’s services are helping its partner institutions benefit from this global phenomenon. “The great enabler today in higher education is online learning, which vastly expands access to our partner institutions,” says Randy Best, founder and chairman of Academic Partnerships. “We are helping leading universities transition to a much more inclusive and sustainable model.”

Once upon a time education was based in institutions, which were seen as seats of learning. Every day people would accept the quality of the courses they took, presented by people they trusted to get them through exams. One day the internet gave people the opportunity to comment publicly on the quality of the products they bought. Because of that clever companies like Amazon took advantage of these comments to encourage buyers’ confidence and improve sales. Because of that people started looking for reviews of products in all sorts of selling areas before they made a purchase. Until finallyeducation realised that students are the best judges of course quality and began to prove the quality of their courses by showing student reviews alongside adverts for courses.
To be fair this is a few more words than 100 (127 if you wish to count) and the ‘Until finally’ bit might look like wishful thinking but it is happening now on the Unistats website (https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/) which is being linked by universities to their prospectus information against particular courses.
The Quality Assurance Agency describes quality assurance as “the means through which an institution ensures and confirms that the conditions are in place for students to achieve the standards set by it or by another awarding body” (QAA 2004), and quality enhancement as “the process of taking deliberate steps at institutional level to improve the quality of learning opportunities....
