The Database of External Quality Assurance Results (DEQAR) - Quality at your Fingertips

Kathryn Máthé and Colin Tück (EQAR)

The European Quality Assurance Register in Higher Education (EQAR) has developed DEQAR with the aim to contribute to the transparency of quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area. DEQAR provides easy access to external quality assurance reports and decisions on higher education institutions and their programmes by EQAR-registered agencies through a single portal. The public preview of DEQAR was launched in May 2018 and currently includes more than 4500 reports covering 807 higher education institutions in 37 countries.


DEQAR serves a broad range of users, including recognition officers in higher education institutions and information centres (ENICNARICs), students, academics, managers and the leadership of higher education institutions, quality assurance agencies, national ministries and other authorities. The session will include a brief presentation of the background, objectives and design of DEQAR, followed by an opportunity to use the public preview and give feedback from your own perspective.
