This Quality Charter, adopted by decision of the FEDE General Assembly of 23 April 2010, obliges all FEDE member institutions to strive to meet and respect the following quality requirements and to accept any help proposed by the FEDE in order to do so.
All students enrolled in programmes at FEDE member institutions must be confident in the quality of their programmes of studies and their institution’s focus on developing their professional skills in a European context.
To this end, the FEDE has adopted a modified version of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area, ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education), 2007, Helsinki, 2nd edition.
The FEDE delegates the implementation of its teaching guidelines to its member institutions It may at any time suspend this delegation where there exists a serious reason for doing so. For any grave or serious reason, the FEDE may also, having first informed an institution of the grounds for grievance and allowed its representatives to express themselves, withdraw the delegation granted to the institution.
An institution that loses its member status thereby also loses the delegation conferred on it to implement FEDE programmes. Should a member institution lose its membership status for any reason (bankruptcy, closure of the institution, suspension of the delegation conferred on it to implement FEDE programmes), the institution’s students may enrol in their programme’s examinations directly through the FEDE as independent candidates.
