MusiQuE Trend Analysis

 
Every two years a trend analysis is produced. This analysis uses the feedback material from MusiQuE reviews, External Evaluator reports and the MusiQuE Board’s own annual reports as its primary sources but also places these in a wider context (e.g. the proportion of European quality assurance activities in higher music education that use sectoral, as opposed to national, agencies and procedures). Successive trend analyses will be able to add a longitudinal dimension, evaluating key areas of change from one analysis to the next.

In 2017, the MusiQuE Board commissioned a third trend analysis focusing on eight reports produced between 2014 and 2016.

In 2015, a transversal analysis of the higher music education system in the Federation Wallonie-Bruxelles has been produced by a team of experts appointed by MusiQuE and AEQES (L’Agence pour l'Evaluation de la Qualité de l'Enseignement Supérieur). The analysis is based upon the review reports which were drafted as a result of the site visits and a study of the self-evaluation reports written by the following institutions: Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles, Arts2 (Mons), Institut Supérieur de Musique et de Pédagogie (Namur) and Conservatoire Royal de Liège. The study offers a contextualized analysis of the current situation of the higher music education system, it lists both strong points and opportunities for improvement, and concludes with recommendations to students, teachers, institutions and the government.
