National external quality assurance requirements
EHEA key commitment
Fully aligned with the ESG
A fully functioning quality assurance system is in operation nationwide, in which all higher education institutions are subject to regular external quality assurance by an agency that has successfully demonstrated compliance with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the EHEA (ESG) through registration on EQAR
Cross-border quality assurance
Not recognising foreign agencies as part of the national external QA requirements
European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes
European Approach available to all higher education institutions
All higher education institutions with degree awarding power are able to approve their own awards and therefore they can employ the European Approach for the quality assurance of their joint programme. This is notwithstanding the fact that the approval of their own awards must be done according to the UK Quality Code for Higher Education.
