3 Introduction This document aims to serve as a reference framework for universities in Castilla y León in the application for and assessment of recognised postgraduate curricula and degrees within the legislative framework set up by the Regional Education Ministry at the Castilla y León Regional Government for authorisation and implementation through Order EDU/1144/2006, of 7 July. On the road towards building the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), postgraduate studies constitute one of the key elements for making higher education in Europe more appealing throughout the rest of the world. They are also new in that they cover the second and third cycles of education, leading to the awarding of the corresponding recognised Masters Degrees and PhD degrees. Postgraduate studies must therefore provide a reference point within the reorganisation of university education. Since they must also undergo a subsequent accreditation process, they need to be evaluated in line with specific quality criteria from the moment they are implemented. The importance of postgraduate teaching requires the setting up of a procedural framework so that universities may, within the scope of their autonomy and with the greatest possible flexibility, define the organisation, structure and content of the Officially Recognised Postgraduate Programmes they wish to introduce. Key to the drawing up of this document was the cooperation afforded by the Spanish Network of University Quality Agencies (REACU), comprising the Regional Quality Assurance Agencies and ANECA, who have agreed on common criteria and aspects to be taken into account in evaluation processes and when authorising applications for Officially Recognised Postgraduate Programmes and Qualifications. This agreement is reflected in a Justification Report on Applications for Officially Recognised Postgraduate Programmes and Qualifications, which addresses two main areas: - Legal requirements and viability of the proposal, including the various aspects which regional education administration must analyse in order to determine whether the proposal complies with legally established norms and that authorisation thereof is justified within the context of regional planning in the matter. - Academic relevance and planning, the content of which addresses those areas related exclusively to academic affairs, and the question of assessment by the Regional Quality Assurance Agencies. This section is contained in the Academic Report for each of the proposed degrees within a programme. European standards and guidelines for internal quality assurance within higher education institutions drawn up by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) 1, as well as the reports presented by the Ministry of Education and Science regarding the forthcoming organisation of university education in Spain have also been taken into consideration. 1 These recommendations are included in Part 1 of the ENQA report: Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area. - 3-

25 The Quality Assurance Agency for the University System in Castilla y León Assessment Procedure Once the applications presented have been reviewed and, where necessary, any administrative corrections been made, the regional Office for Research and Universities at the Castilla y León Regional Government will submit to the Agency the electronic documentation containing the corresponding applications for evaluation. The evaluation process at the Agency will focus on the academic aspects of the proposed degrees in each Programme, reflected in the academic report for each degree. The process commences with an external evaluation undertaken by experts who do not belong to universities in the region of Castilla y León, through five commissions (one for each scientific field: Experimental Sciences, Health Sciences, Social, Economic and Legal Sciences, Technical Disciplines, Humanities and Arts) 4, The profile of the experts shall be: - University Full Professors or Professors with proven experience in teaching and research. - Experts in the area of knowledge being evaluated. - An understanding of the nature and challenges of the EHEA. - Experience in quality assessment procedures. Committee members will be given previous training in the methodology, procedures and assessment criteria to be applied in order to help them in their work. The draft reports will be forwarded to the Postgraduate Evaluation Commission, made up of persons of distinguished professional prestige, with an academic profile and the necessary teaching and research background, experienced in management and assessment procedures and familiar with the process of adaptation to the EHEA. This Commission will be made up of professors from universities in Castilla y León, with an understanding of how our university system works, as well as professors from outside our region, who can provide an external and enriching view. The Commission should be balanced with regard to the scientific fields to which its members are linked. Its composition is published in the Official Bulletin of Castilla y León 5 and on the Agency website. Members of the assessment bodies (Committees and Commission) shall refrain from assessing proposals for degrees in which they are directly involved or for universities submitting proposals with whom they are related in the provision of services. Based on the external assessment reports, the Commission shall issue a draft report for each of the proposed degrees, to be forwarded to the bodies responsible for Officially Recognised University Postgraduate Programmes, in order for any arguments which they deem justified to be put forward. Draft reports must be reasoned and may 4 The number of members on the Committees will be determined depending on the number of applications to be assessed. 5 BOCyL 186, 26 September

26 include recommendations and suggestions for improving the content of the proposals being evaluated. After analysing the arguments put forward, the Commission will draw up the final reports on each of the proposed degrees, clearly stating the reasons for the decision taken. The Quality Assurance Agency for the University System in Castilla y León will establish support mechanisms to deal with any enquiries which may be made by the universities when drawing up and evaluating the proposals

27 Assessment criteria and aspects to be evaluated in proposals for officially recognised postgraduate degrees Based on the information reflected in the academic reports of the corresponding degrees, the following assessment criteria and sub-criteria will be specified, together with a description thereof and the corresponding aspects to be assessed in each: Criterion 1.
