Thematic Peer Group C

In September 2018, the BFUG formally established this Thematic Peer Group C on Quality Assurance (TPG C on QA)  more specifically on Key Commitment 3 (Quality Assurance in compliance with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area) based on the interests and needs indicated by the BFUG members and Consultative members in a survey conducted during the summer of 2018.

Specific thematic indications include topics such as:

  • legislative framework in line with the ESG (introducing changes),
  • ensuring effectiveness of internal quality assurance arrangements, including the use of QA results in the decision-making process and quality culture as well as links to learning and teaching,
  • the role and engagement of stakeholders in internal and external QA (students, teachers, employers),
  • Cross-border QA,
  • European Approach to the QA of joint programmes.


Action plan of the Thematic Peer Group C on Quality Assurance (last update 25.07.2019)


Call for applications - Peer Support on Quality Assurance in Higher Education: Staff Mobility (deadline 31 August 2019) 

The Thematic Peer Group C on Quality Assurance was established with the aim of fostering peer support among countries. Therefore, a European project has been created to facilitate and finance a system of staff mobility across Europe. 

Through a system of mobility of staff members working in the field of quality assurance within national authorities (ministries), quality assurance agencies and/or stakeholder organizations, peer support can be facilitated. All flows and directions of staff mobility between ministries, QA-agencies and stakeholder organizations are possible. As such, the system supports the professional development of staff by offering a work placement in another country. Each mobile peer will further develop its QA competencies through job shadowing, observation periods and/or training at a partner QA agency/ministry/organization abroad.
