2013 Policy paper on quality of higher education

2013 Policy paper on quality of higher education | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

1. Introduction

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.
