Indexes of Student Participation

This European Index of Student Participation, created by the STUPS project, aims to objectively, transparently and reliably measure and compare the potential for student participation offered by each higher education system in the European Union. The index makes use of indicators to categorise the situation of the item at the national level. To measure the potential of the item in each higher education system, a scale of ratios (%) is used to assess the weight of the student sector within the composition of the bodies. Other indicators are measured on a ordinal scale represented as a traffic light according to the following conditions: – The indicator is fulfilled to its full potential (green); – The indicator is only partially fulfilled (orange); – The indicator is not met (red)
