Quality Assurance in Psychology Programmes across Europe: Survey and Reflections
Marques, J. Frederico
Psychology Learning and Teaching, v12 n1 p44-54 Mar 2013
The present article examines how different institutions that offer psychology study cycles across Europe have adopted quality principles and have taken up particular quality assurance initiatives to raise standards and enhance quality. Thirty-eight different institutions from 32 countries who were members of a European psychology network responded to a survey about quality issues. Results are presented regarding (a) policy and procedures for quality assurance, (b) approval, monitoring and periodic review of programmes and awards, (c) assessment of students, and (d) quality assurance of teaching staff. Implications for the quality assurance of psychology programmes and for further studies are discussed.
