Pool of Reviewers (PoR)

The Reviewers

The Reviewers’ activities shall be based on the following principles:

  • The management of the review process must be completely independent of the institution itself;
  • The reviewers’ work must be independent of the BoD, BoC, DoA and all other bodies or officers of the Agency;
  • As such, the review is an evidence-based process carried out by independent experts;
  • The review is a process of verification of information provided in the self-evaluation report (SER) and other documentation and the exploration of any matters which are omitted from that documentation;
  • The process is transparent, and reports are published.

A Review Team is composed of a Senior Reviewer acting as Chairperson of the Review Team (CoRT), and the necessary Reviewers or Senior Reviewers. The total number of reviewers depends on the case and shall be defined by the Bye-laws.
Their task is to perform the site visit of the Member seeking accreditation. The information in Member’s SER will be checked, necessary additional research can be carried out, and the Review Team will make a detailed Review Report about their findings.
The final version of the Review Report, together with all relevant evidence, will be submitted to the CoC.
The Review Teams are appointed by CoR; team members are selected from the PoR. The members of the Review Team cannot have a conflict of interest with the Member seeking accreditation.

Reviewers and Senior Reviewers are appointed by the BoD. All together, they form the Pool of Reviewers (PoR).
Details of the process of Reviewers’, Senior Reviewers’ and Chairperson of the Reviewers’ nomination are ruled by the Bye-Laws.

Reviewers and Senior Reviewers are normally appointed for 3 years. Student Reviewers get a mandate of 1year, or are appointed per case.

All can be reappointed.

The Chair of the Pool of Reviewers:

The Senior Reviewers elect between them a chairperson, also called “Chairperson of the Reviewers” (CoR).
The Chairperson of the Reviewers (CoR) organizes the work of the Reviewers.

His/her duties and responsibilities:

  • Appoints the Review Team to execute the review visit of an institution by selecting at least one Senior Reviewer and the necessary Reviewers from the PoR and appointing one of the selected Senior Reviewers as Chairperson of the Review Team (CoRT);
  • The CoR appoints a Senior Reviewer, preferably the CoRT, who reviews the Annual Programme Report (APR), submitted by accredited members. This report will be submitted to the BoC. If s/he is no longer available, the CoR appoints this reviewer by selecting a Senior Reviewer from the PoR;
  • Informs the accreditation seeking Member about the composition of the review team;
  • Collects all accreditation related documentation from the Members seeking accreditation and forwards it to the review team;
  • Submits the final version of the review visit report to the CoC;
  • Gives training to Reviewers;
  • Makes sure the expenses of the review process are reasonable from the viewpoint of costs and quality;
  • Make sure all procedures of the Agency are followed by the Reviewers;
  • Prepares an annual report to the AGM on all accreditation reviews taken place over the last year.

The CoR reports to the BoD.
The CoR is ex-officio a non-voting member of the BoD.

Currently, the Pool of Reviewers is chaired by Prof. Dr. Jan Lojda

These officers are member of the Quality Assurance Pool of the European Students' Union, and appointed in close cooperation with ESU's management.

Previous PoR mandates:



When "26/05/2012" is mentioned as a starting date of a mandate, it means that the officer was appointed at the start of the Agency. The Agency took the form of an "aisbl" (international non-profit) at that date.
Most probably, the officer served already earlier at the previous ECBE, but this information is currently not published.
