  • Update on the revision of the ESG
    Since 2005 the development of both institutional and national/regional QA systems has been underpinned by the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG). The ESG were prepared by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) in cooperation with the European Students’ Union (ESU), the European University Association (EUA) and the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE), and adopted in the Ministerial Meeting in 2005.

    Although this might over-simplify the situation, it can be argued that the European Commission’s Progress Report on QA published in 2009 acted as one of the catalysts for the discussions on whether the ESG fulfilled their purpose and were still useful in 2009. The report suggested, for example, adding more explicit links to the other "Bologna Tools" in the document.
