Any student following a course in a FEDE member school must be ensured of the quality of the education, which is part of a professionalization-oriented process in a European context.
To this end, the FEDE selected and adapted part of the standards and guidelines contained in “Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area”,ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance inHigher Education), 2007, Helsinki, 2ndedition.European standards and guidelines for quality management in member schools.
The FEDE authorises member schools to use its course reference information. The FEDE can suspend this authorisation at any time in the event of a serious offence. It can also withdraw the authorisation in the event of a serious breach after granting audience to the representatives of the mandated entity. The representatives are informed beforehand of the alleged offences.
Any school that loses membership loses the right to use its course reference information. In the event of loss of official status – regardless of the reason (breach, stop of activity or suspension of authorisation) – learners can register for exams directly with the FEDE as independent candidates.
