Why include students

In general, students contribute consistently to the reviews and most experts mention different examples of "added value". Students play a fundamental role in the assessment of quality of education.

Student involvement either in internal or external quality assurance processes provides an improvement of these processes. Students often provide new solutions, and it is reflected in an enrichment of the evaluation reports, expanding and including other aspects not previously taken into account, or which have not been addressed likewise.

Both institutions and QA agencies where students are involved appreciate their participation and commitment, perceiving it as inspiring and seeing good, solid results from their involvement, valuing the students as partners and a great resource in this work.
