EUducation: Nine Proposals for Quality Higher Education


Over the past six years, I have had the chance to discreetly observe how French-speaking higher education institutions operate on a daily basis within the Agency for Quality Higher Education in Wallonia-Brussels Federation (WBF). I have participated in the evaluation of over 70 programs at 50 institutions. Based on interviews with several thousand people across all networks and all forms of education, I have distilled what I have learned into nine actionable recommendations (and some more sub-recommendations) for those involved in administering education.

While these proposals are intended to inspire educational institutions in their policymaking, I think that we could also consider them within the context of education across the EU.
