- “The Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area”, developed by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ESG-ENQA).
The main purpose of ENQA standards and guidelines is to contribute to a common understanding of quality assurance in all countries and among all stakeholders. They are used by HEIs and quality assurance Agencies as a reference guide for external and internal quality assurance systems in higher education. The documents are not prescriptive, they are advisory in the following areas:
- to determine the general structure of quality assurance systems for education and training at the European, national and institutional level, contribute to the assurance and improvement of the quality of higher education in the European educational area;
- to support mutual trust and therefore to promote the recognition and mobility across national borders;
- to provide information on quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area.
- INQAAHE Guidelines of Good Practice developed by the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (GGP-INQAAHE).
These are standards of professional practice to be used by quality assurance agencies for promoting internal and/or external quality assurance. The Agency’s demonstration of how its practice is aligned with the Guidelines promotes an understanding of how the Agency operates, leading to increase the opportunities for collaboration with other INQAAHE Agencies.
- ISO 9001:2015 Quality management systems. Requirements. International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
The ISO 9000 series of standards, which describe a quality management system model, are designed to help organizations consistently provide customers and other stakeholders with products or services that can meet their requirements and expectations. Organizations can receive an independent external assessment from a third party – a certification body, after passing the appropriate audit. More than a million organizations around the world, incl. academic and research, have certified quality management systems, confirming the effectiveness of the ISO 9001 standard as one of the most common tools for building a management system.
Its universal nature allows the ISO 9001 standard being applied to any organization, regardless of the field of activity, size, form of ownership, geographical location. ISO standards are structured to be easily integrated into an organization’s existing management system to meet and exceed customer requirements and expectations.
In the development of management system standards, the International Organization for Standardization has developed the ISO 21001:2018 standard to be used for educational institutions. All requirements of ISO 21001:2018 are generic and can be applied to any institution that uses a curriculum to support the development of competence through teaching, learning or research.
