Brief organisational background

The British Council creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries, and builds trust between them worldwide. We call this work cultural relations.

We work in over 100 countries, connecting millions of people with the United Kingdom through programmes and services in the English language, the Arts, Education and Society. We believe these are the most effective means of engaging with others, and we have been doing this work since 1934.

Our work in English aims to bring high quality language materials to every learner and teacher who wants them. In Education and Society, we help in transforming national education systems, builds more inclusive and open societies and increases young people’s opportunities. In Arts, we involves the very best British and international artistic talent. We help increase audiences for international work in the UK and for UK work globally. We bring artists together and support the development of skills and policy in the arts and creative industries.

In these ways, the British Council builds links between UK people and institutions and those around the world, helping to create trust and lay foundations for prosperity and security around the world.

Brief organisational background

Since it was founded in 1925, around two million scholars in Germany and abroad have received DAAD funding. It is a registered association and its members are German institutions of higher education and student bodies. Its activities go far beyond simply awarding grants and scholarships. The DAAD supports the internationalisation of German universities, promotes German studies and the German language abroad, assists developing countries in establishing effective universities and advises decision makers on matters of cultural, education and development policy.

The DAAD relies on a network of 15 regional offices and 56 Information centres (ICs) in 60 countries, about 450 “Lektors” and language assistants, 20 Centres of German and European Studies, 29 German-language degree programmes in Central and Eastern Europe, a diverse range of DAAD-funded university projects abroad, ranging from individual courses to establishing new universities, and a pool of 335,000 alumni. It is this network which provides the DAAD with a comprehensive view of the political, economic, social and higher-educational circumstances in each respective country.

Overview of role in project

Together with its partners AQAN, SEAMEO RIHED and AUN QA as well as the relevant national authorities the DAAD implements result areas 2a (Qualifications Frameworks) and 2b (Quality Assurance). In order to strengthen ASEAN cooperation in the field of quality assurance and qualification frameworks, the following specific objectives are put forward under Result Area 2 of the EU SHARE project:

A – ASEAN Qualification Reference Framework (QF)

  • support the development of a politically endorsed regional qualification framework, in close synergy with existing initiatives (ASEAN Qualification Reference Framework – AQRF);
  • contribute to better comparability of degrees in the ASEAN region and the EU, by taking into account existing initiatives (EQF, QF-EHEA) in the development of the AQRF;
  • assist ASEAN member states in which National Qualification Frameworks (NQF) have been
  • established (Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei Darussalam, Philippines; sectoral qualification frameworks in Singapore and Thailand) to align them with the regional qualification framework;
  • assist the other ASEAN member states in which NQFs are still in development or under discussion (e.g. Cambodia, Myanmar, Lao PDR and Vietnam) to develop their NQFs in line with the regional qualification framework.

B – ASEAN Quality Assurance (QA)

  • map the ASEAN Quality Assurance Framework for Higher Education (AQAF) standards to the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance (ESG) and further develop them, in order to ensure compatibility with internationally recognised standards;
  • create guidelines (based on the standards development) for external reviews of HE Institutions
  • (objectives, methodology, processes, selection of experts, outcomes etc.);
  • create guidelines for external reviews of QA agencies;
  • contribute to capacity building for ASEAN QA actors: Quality Assurance Agencies (QAAs) / other public authorities in the field of quality assurance, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and their academic communities.

Brief organisational background

Nuffic is the expertise and service centre for internationalisation in Dutch education. From primary and secondary education to vocational training and higher education and research.

From its headquarters in The Hague and eleven offices worldwide, Nuffic pursues its mission of internationalising education. As an expert, a service provider, a knowledge centre and as a model for the internationalisation of education.

It is Nuffic’s ambition to help ensure that all pupils and students have the opportunity to develop a strong basis in internationalisation by 2020. Internationalisation belongs at the very core of education, and it is never too early for schools to begin.

Overview of role in project

Nuffic is responsible for Result Area 3. Nuffic will pilot test the impact of SHARE’s work on CTS, through “mobility with scholarships.” Central to the scholarship programme will be the overall student experience in receiving credits for the course work done abroad and the possibility to use these credits towards their degree in their home university. The scholarships will facilitate both intra-ASEAN and ASEAN-EU mobility.

The mobility with scholarships within SHARE will provide direct feedback for further progress in CTS to develop continuous improvements. The knowledge gathered in that process, will in turn also benefit SHARE’s work in Quality Assurance and Quality Frameworks.

Brief organisational background

The European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) is an umbrella organisation which represents its members at the European level and internationally, especially in political decision making processes and in co-operations with stakeholder organisations.

The Association aims to maintain and enhance the quality of European higher education at a high level, and to act as a major driving force for the development of quality assurance across all the Bologna signatory countries.

ENQA contributes to this goal especially by promoting European co-operation in the field of quality assurance in higher education and disseminating information and expertise among its members and towards stakeholders in order to develop and share good practice and to foster the European dimension of quality assurance.

Overview of role in project

ENQA’s role in the project is to strengthen the existing ASEAN Qualifications Reference Framework with a more inclusive focus on HE and strategically link it with national and institutional purposes across the ASEAN area. ENQA will be mainly responsible for executing the reviews of agencies. It will also provide expertise to the working group on QA, which will develop guidelines to operationalise the existing AQAFHE standards for both QA agency reviews and for external institutional reviews, mapping their comparability and compatibility with similar regional frameworks (e.g. ESG). Results will enhance the quality of HE across the ASEAN area and link more closely with the demands of the labour market and society in general.
