European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes

The Bologna Follow-Up Group (BFUG) endorsed the proposal for a European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes.

EHEA ministers are invited to approve the proposal at their Yerevan Conference, in May 2015, together with the revised version of the ESG.

Joint programmes are a hallmark of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The European Approach has been developed to ease external quality assurance of these programmes: it sets standards that are based on the agreed tools of the EHEA, without applying additional national criteria.
