European Students’ Union (ESU)

The European Students’ Union (ESU) is an umbrella organisation of 47 National Unions of Students from 39 countries. The aim of ESU is to represent and promote the educational, social, economic and cultural interests of students at the European level towards all relevant bodies. For ESU it is key that change-leading quality assurance is implemented with a holistic approach according to the needs of the students. It should lead not only to ensure the delivery higher education, in whatever form of delivery, according to agreed standards but also to enhance higher education provision within the continuous improvement cycle. It is vital that all higher education stakeholders enjoy ownership over quality assurance, and thus there is a stakeholders’ close cooperation.
