Enhancing quality: From policy to practice
A study has been produced, examining the impact that the ESG revision has had on relevant stakeholders, the changes in practices necessary to comply with new elements of the ESG, and innovative approaches to tackling the challenges that arise as a result of the new elements of the ESG. Input for the study was taken from the evidence collected and practices discussed during the conferences, webinars, surveys and focus groups.
The study concludes with recommendations for each stakeholder group for developing the quality of higher education through the use of the ESG.

The Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area, also known as the European Standards and Guidelines or ESG, are the basis for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). They are one of the main achievements of the Bologna Process and its follow-up structure, the Bologna Follow-Up Group (BFUG) in the past decade.
