Quality assurance

Quality and employability

We work determinedly with the maintenance and further development of a high quality in our study programmes.

All study programmes are research-based and characterized by great relevance and employability in correlation with the surrounding society. Active researchers conduct the teaching, in close relation to the surrounding society in order to keep it always relevant and up to date. This will reinforce that the finished candidates’ competencies and knowledge are consistent with the needs and expectations of the surrounding society.   

Teaching methods and form of learning are continuously developed and reimagined.

Evaluation of study programme quality 

There is a continuous work with ensuring the highest quality of the study programmes. The quality assurance is conducted at both teaching and study programme levels.

Development of quality assurance system

We are actively participating in the work with development and operation of a professional quality assurance system that must be characterized by systematical and relevant feedback from students, teachers, graduates, employer panels and examiners.

We take equal part in development and efficiency improvement of the university’s student administrative system as well as the university’s other administrative systems.

Semester evaluation

Each semester is to be evaluated in a semester evaluation report. The report is written by the students (typically the students from the semester group) by the new semester’s beginning. This is to ensure that the examinations from the previous semester can be evaluated in the report as well.

The semester coordinator initiates the writing process on the basis of the quantitative semester evaluation (SurveyXact) which is published by the study board.

The completed semester evaluation report is sent to the study board.

Semester coordinator

The semester coordinator has a central role in the coordination and continuous quality assurance of teaching. The coordinator refers to the study board and is responsible for the concrete planning, controlling, monitoring and evaluation of teaching and additional activities during the semester. The coordinator performs his or hers function through meetings on a regular basis with students (via semester introduction, semester group meetings, semester evaluation etc.) and lecturers.
