This session will examine initial findings from a forthcoming Eurydice publication on the topic of access, retention and employability in higher education in Europe. The project has gathered information from national authorities and quality assurance agencies on policy and practice in these areas, and findings will be presented and discussed. Key questions that will be addressed are: How are national priorities for the social dimension currently supported by quality assurance agencies? Should the role of quality assurance agencies evolve in relation to the social dimension? If so, how?
