Learning outcomes according to educational programs and methods of their evaluation As a result of studying the academic discipline, the student must be able to demonstrate the following learning outcomes: 1. To form and update the knowledge base for postgraduate students' understanding of the educational policy to ensure the quality of higher education. 2. Develop, on the basis of knowledge and skills, the ability to develop own comparisons and proposals for the implementation of best practices at the national and higher education level.

Summary of the subject: The educational discipline allows graduate students to master the necessary material for practical and research work in the field of internal and external quality assurance of higher education. Postgraduate students will receive theoretical and practical materials related to the formation and development of international experience in the context of the integration of Ukrainian higher education in the sense of ensuring its quality in the European educational space. At lectures and practical (seminar) classes, graduate students will be exposed to the most important currents and practices in leading European countries. The skills of graduate students will be developed in terms of the projection of this experience on the Ukrainian practice of ensuring the quality of higher education. In addition to the national context and state policy in the field of quality, regulatory support of these processes, course participants will acquire key skills related to internal quality assurance of higher education in higher education institutions. A distinctive feature of the course materials is the used experience of preparation and participation of Ukrainian HEIs in international projects and the formation of internal systems for ensuring the quality of educational activities in HEIs based on this experience.
