The Strategic Plan provides Hcéres with a roadmap through to 2020, setting out its own quality assurance policy, its objectives and progress indicators, and the resources required to achieve them.
Hcéres also bases its quality approach on the standards adopted in the European Higher Education Area (European Standards and Guidelines - ESG). In 2017, recognition by the European bodies (ENQA, EQAR) provided a sign of confidence for all relevant stakeholders. It marked the conclusion of a process consisting of:
- a self-evaluation of the operations of the High Council and of its practices to define avenues for development,
- an external evaluation conducted by a panel of international experts on the basis of the ESG.
