It is crucial that the MusiQuE standards should undergo continuous development to ensure that they remain reflective of the current reality of higher music education and of the artistic professions, respond to any further evolution of the Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) and answer the changing needs of institutions and of society.
The Revision of the standards is under the responsibility of the MusiQuE Board and it is a process that takes place every 4 years.
