AQU Catalunya signs collaboration agreement with European Students' Union
AQU Catalunya and the European Students' Union have signed an agreement regulating the participation of international students in the quality assurance processes organised by AQU Catalunya.
The agreement between the European Students' Union (ESU) and AQU Catalunya states that the ESU will provide AQU Catalunya with prospective international students from its pool of reviewers to form part of the external review committees requested by AQU Catalunya, within the framework of the accreditation processes it coordinates.
With this agreement, AQU Catalunya intends to introduce an international perspective through students in appropriate accreditation processes.
The European Students' Union is a European association that includes 45 national student associations (NUS) from 40 countries. The aim of the ESU is to represent and promote the educational, social, economic and cultural interests of students at European level before all relevant bodies and, in particular, the European Union, the Bologna Follow-up Group, the Council of Europe and UNESCO. Through its members, ESU represents almost 20 million students in Europe.
The agreement with the ESU has a duration of three years, provides for regular monitoring of the operation of the agreement, and may be renewed for a further three years.
