Abstract

Bosnia and Herzegovina showed steady progress in adapting to EU standards and frameworks in higher education. The Agency for Development of Higher Education and Quality Assurance is an excellent example to discuss how changes and new ESG are going to be additional impetus for advancements in the national system of higher education in this, and other, countries. Higher education system in Bosnia and Herzegovina often needs external motivators for initiating positive changes in formal way. The Agency is keeping its pace with new and positive trends in Europe, thus contributing not only to higher education on national level, but also among the higher education institutions. This paper will present the Agency’s positive practice, synergistic approach and partnership relation with one higher education institution through the use of new ESG to advance the system of higher education in this country which could serve as a model for other agencies across Europe.
