Student experts provide a complementary vision to the expert committee and make it more diverse, which can only improve the quality of the evaluation. Although they have a less distant view of university teaching than the other members, who are mostly from academic backgrounds, their analysis is relevant. In particular, they provide a fresh view of aspects of the evaluation, such as how study programmes are managed and how teaching is organised. Site visits provide answers not only to the panel but also to the institution being evaluated. A veritable dialogue develops, a real exchange of views, which both eliminates preconceptions about Hcéres and demonstrates its goodwill towards teaching and administrative staff. It was a very worthwhile experience that enabled me both to expand my network of contacts and to acquire skills as an expert.
