ASIIN Agreement with European Students Union

ASIIN, Germany's engineering program accreditation agency has renewed an agreement with the European Students' Union (ESU).  On 29 October 2021, ASIIN signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the ESU which formalizes 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.

The European Students’ Union (ESU) is the umbrella organisation of 45 National Unions of Students (NUS) from 40 countries. The aim of ESU is to represent and promote the educational, social, economic and cultural interests of students at the European level towards all relevant bodies and in particular the European Union, Bologna Follow Up Group, Council of Europe and UNESCO. Through its members, ESU represents almost 20 million students in Europe.
