Results announced from the Swedish Higher Education Authority’s review of higher education institutions

People sitting down and talking. UKÄ.

During autumn 2020, a higher education institution review of Lund University was launched, focusing on the extent to which the University’s systematic quality assurance work functions satisfactorily in relation to the criteria set by the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ).
Now a decision and statement from the assessment group have been announced.

UKÄ reviewed Lund University’s internal quality assurance of study programmes at all levels. All higher education institutions in Sweden undergo this review once every sixth year and are assessed on a three-grade scale: approved, approved with reservations or quality assurance work called into question.

The review is conducted by an external assessment group and focuses on a total of 19 assessment criteria that cover all issues linked to quality, such as processes for follow-up, student support, regular reviews of study programmes and the opportunities for students and doctoral students to influence their education.

All the assessment criteria were deemed to be met at Lund University and the overall assessment was that Lund University’s quality assurance work is approved. In their statement, the assessment group highlighted the strengths of Lund University’s quality assurance work and made recommendations as to certain areas the University could continue to develop.

The assessment group’s decision and statement on the UKÄ website (in Swedish).

Out of the 26 Swedish higher education institutions reviewed so far, five have been assessed as approved overall. Of these, only Lund University and the University of Arts, Crafts and Design have met all 19 of the assessment criteria.
