New national system for quality evaluation
The Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) describes in a report how the national system for quality assurance will work over the next six years. The system consists of four components:
- Appraisal of applications for degree-awarding powers
- Review of higher education institutions’ quality assurance processes
- Programme evaluations
- Thematic evaluations
The new system involves higher education institutions taking more responsibility than before in terms of internal quality assurance. Regarding the programme evaluations component, teacher training programmes and a selection of third-cycle programmes will be evaluated.
In 2017, a thematic evaluation of the higher education institutions’ efforts to promote sustainable development has also been conducted. As for the review of the institutions’ quality assurance processes, a pilot review of four institutions is currently underway before the component is fully implemented by UKÄ.
At Lund University, a quality assurance project has been initiated by the university-wide Education Board to meet these new requirements.
For more information about the University’s internal work, please contact Åsa Ekberg.
National evaluation of third-cycle education
In 2017, a number of third-cycle programmes at Lund University are being evaluated by UKÄ. The outcome of these evaluations is expected at the end of 2017. For more information, please contact Martin Nykvist, martin [dot] nykvist [at] stu [dot] lu [dot] se.
