Abstract
Quality education and student-centred learning has been one of the top priorities of the European Students’ Union (ESU) for years. The results of recent research coordinated by ESU show that not only is student-centred learning an essential component of quality education, but also from the viewpoint of students quality education is to a large extent equal to student centred education and vice versa. As quality assurance is one of the main areas that influence reforms in teaching and learning, the authors explore how the concept of student-centred learning is incorporated in current quality assurance policy and procedures. This paper looks at the student concept of quality education and the practical definition of student-centred learning developed by the European Students’ Union. It compares both concepts and gives recommendations for further implementation of student-centred learning in quality assurance policy and procedures.
