Evaluation of ongoing courses and study programmes
Evaluation of ongoing courses and study programmes takes place in several different ways. For example, methods that are used include external assessment, focus on a particular programme over time or a snapshot of the faculty’s entire range of courses and study programmes.
Each faculty is responsible for having fit-for-purpose quality assurance and quality enhancement processes for its courses and study programmes. The approach to the evaluation of qualifying courses and study programmes is laid down in the regulations for quality assurance and quality enhancement of education at Lund University. Guidelines – one set for the evaluation of first or second-cycle education and another for third-cycle education – have been drawn up as support.
In addition to these internally initiated evaluations, the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) evaluates a specific nation-wide selection of courses and study programmes.
The aim is to constantly improve and enhance the education at Lund University, and to ensure that the courses and study programmes live up to the quality criteria that the University has jointly agreed upon. The starting point is the national and international standards and guidelines.
