ASIIN again signs "Memorandum of Understanding" with the "European Students' Union" (ESU)

On 29 October 2021, ASIIN again signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the European Students' Union (ESU). This concerns cooperation in the recruitment of student experts for the implementation of international accreditation procedures.

Upon request, ESU will nominate student experts for participation in the procedures carried out by ASIIN. The student experts have the same rights and duties as all other members of the expert group. The accreditation procedures are carried out according to the criteria of the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG) and all decisions are registered in the Database of External Quality Assurance Results (DEQAR) and are thus publicly accessible.

At its meeting on October 15, 2021, the EQAR Register Committee extended the registration of ASIIN to August 31, 2026, thereby confirming ASIIN's compliance with the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG).
