Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes. ENQA Workshop Report 19

ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education)
In view of the Bologna ministerial conference to be held in April 2012 in Bucharest, ENQA organised a seminar in September 2011 on Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes in collaboration with the Austrian Accreditation Council (OAR). The purpose of this seminar was twofold: first, to analyse the experience already gained in quality assurance of joint programmes as regards specific issues and methodological approaches, and second, to make recommendations to the ministers responsible for higher education in the European Higher Education Area. This report highlights the results of three projects, undertaken since 2004 and presented at the ENQA seminar in Vienna, to illustrate the width of experience that quality assurance agencies have in the quality assurance of joint programmes. The articles clearly show that what remains the major impediment for the agencies is not the conduct of QA of joint programmes in itself, but rather the national regulations for approval of the different joint programmes. Articles included in this report are: (1) A retrospective view of the Transnational European Evaluation Project (TEEP II) and identifying opportunities for the future (Josep Grifoll); (2) Joint Master's programmes--joint evaluations: A Nordic challenge (Kirsi Hiltunen); and (3) Joint programmes and mutual recognition of accreditation decisions (Mark Frederiks). Quality assurance of joint programmes is appended. (Contains 1 table and 17 footnotes.)
