This paper addresses a concern expressed in the Bergen Communique (2005) that “with regard to Quality Assurance there is still progress to be made in respect of student involvement.” This concern was also reflected in the Quality Culture Student Support Network which noted that “none of the partner institutions felt that they had resolved the issue of student involvement satisfactorily”. The final QC report noted that all of the eighteen networks that participated across the three year project regarded student involvement as important in developing a Quality Culture, however there was a strong variation across institutions. These comments all arise from academic staff perspectives, a student perspective may offer a different and more negative viewpoint, as evidenced in ESIB’s Bologna Black Book.
