EXEQUANT – Promoting the External Dimension of the Bologna Process: Quality Assurance in a National and Transnational Context

EURASHE is leading the EXEQUANT project on Promoting the External Dimension of the Bologna Process: Quality Assurance in a National and Transnational Context.

Underneath are further information on:


The objective of the project was to raise standards in the HEIs in the partner countries, by implementing the standards of Quality Assurance that were developed in Europe in the framework of the Bologna Process. This project, by stressing the external dimension of the Bologna Process and by clearly focusing on Quality Assurance in a National and Transnational Context, has been of great help in fostering a debate between experts from Europe and from the Eurasian partner countries (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan). In addition, it helped create close links between the universities in the area and, in general, the educational sectors of the three countries involved, and also bring the process of reform of HE in the three partner countries more in line with European standards.
