The aim of the DEQAR project is to develop a database that will enhance access to reliable information on the higher education institutions/programmes that have been subject to external quality assurance in line with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG). The database will collate and offer direct access to reports and decisions from all registered agencies, which is expected to contribute to the transparency of external QA outcomes and thus facilitate the recognition of academic qualifications.

The database will be designed to respond to the information needs of a broad range of users, including recognition information centres (ENIC-NARICs), recognition officers in higher education institutions, students, quality assurance agencies, ministry representatives and other national authorities, and support different types of decision-making (e.g. recognition of degrees, mobility of students, portability of grants/loans).

EUA is a partner in this project, which is coordinated by EQAR (European Quality Assurance Register for higher Education). Among the other partners are 17 quality assurance agencies and stakeholder organisations such as ENQA, EURASHE and ESU.

Details of the project activities and partners can be found here.
