This presentation will outline the development of quality assurance in doctoral education over the last five to ten years, from the Salzburg Principles to the present day. During this time, universities have almost universally set up doctoral schools as management units for doctoral education with considerable responsibility for quality assurance. The presentation will outline the differences between quality assurance in the first and second cycle and the processes required to enhance quality in doctoral education. The presentation will also underline how, despite the differences, the two areas share basic principles for quality. The evidence will be based on EUA’s ARDE project and more recent data collection on the management of doctoral education.
