Welcome to ESSA!

European Students, Sustainability Auditing is an EU initiative funded through Erasmus+.

It is a three-year project (which started in September 2016) that aims to improve levels of student satisfaction by allowing them to engage with real world issues in a sphere that is of considerable significance to many of them - social responsibility – alongside the creation of a more flexible approach to student learning, assessment and certification across Europe’s higher education sector. Delivering an audit at a European higher education institution is the opportunity through which this real-world engagement and flexible learning take place.

A team of organisations is working on the project across Europe, including Kaunas University of Technology (KTU, Lithuania) and KTU Students’ Union, University of Porto (Portugal) and AEFCEUP (Portugal), University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh University Students’ Association (UK), National Union of Students UK, and the European Students’ Union.

This online audit tool is designed to help institutions prepare for their audit and also act as a repository of evidence for student auditors.

If you need any support when completing this online audit tool, please get in touch with a member of the project team.

Enjoy the project!
