Publication of the new version of the ESG in Catalan

Subsequent to the adoption of the revised version of the "Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area", commonly known as ESG, at the EHEA Ministerial Conference held in Yerevan (Armenia) the 14th and 15th of May, the text of the ESG has been translated into Catalan and is available here.

The revision included several consultation rounds involving both the key stakeholder organisations and ministries. The many comments, proposals and recommendations received by the work group involved in revising the ESG (ENQA, ESU, EUA i EURASHE) were very useful and of extreme importance for the revision process and are reflected in the resulting revised version. This new edition, which also reflects a consensus among all the organisations involved on how to take forward quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) provides a firm basis for successful implementation.

The purposes of the ESG are as follows:

  • They set a common framework for quality assurance systems for learning and teaching at European, national and institutional level.
  • They enable the assurance and improvement of quality of higher education in the EHEA.
  • They support mutual trust, thus facilitating recognition and mobility within and across national borders.
  • They provide information on quality assurance in the EHEA.

For more information, see the ENQA Standards and Guidelines and the meeting organised by ACPUA and Unibasq on 18-19 June, where various presentations dealing with the revised version of the ESG were made.
