The Concept of Excellence in Higher Education by ENQA.

Logo ENQAIn the beginning of August 2014 European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) published a report entitled „The Concept of Excellence in Higher Education” reflecting the search for meaning of excellence in education. The framework for the discussion is set by following questions:

  • What is excellence?
  • How is it currently recognised?
  • What criteria can be used to assess the application of excellence?
  • Can excellence be achieved through quality assurance?
  • What current examples are there of excellence in practice?

The abovementioned questions were agreed by ENQA working group launched in 2012 and answers in publication reflect two years of work of its members.
