National reviews

The Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) is tasked with evaluating the quality of higher education and research. The government assigns UKÄ’s remit. The national quality assurance system is based on the higher education institutions taking considerable individual responsibility for their own internal quality assurance.

UKÄ will carry out four types of reviews between 2017 and 2022 to ensure quality in Swedish higher education.

Appraisal of applications for degree-awarding powers

At Lund University this primarily concerns study programmes leading to professional qualifications. The University can independently decide on other study programmes.

Institutional reviews of the HEIs' quality assurance processes

Focus on how satisfactorily the University’s quality assurance work (system) functions based on UKÄ’s criteria. A review of Lund University is to commence in autumn 2020.

Programme evaluations

Primarily teacher training and a selection of third-cycle study programmes will be evaluated nationally by UKÄ. This means, for example, that all secondary school teacher programmes in Sweden will be evaluated at the same time.

Thematic evaluations 

In 2017 a thematic evaluation of the work to promote sustainable development at higher education institutions was carried out. The next topic will focus on the higher education institutions’ work on promoting widened participation. Results will be presented no later than 1 March 2021.

More information on the national quality assurance system can be found on the UKÄ website.

There you will also find reports with results from completed evaluations, a schedule for coming evaluations, etc.
