Education evaluation

Part of the faculty’s quality assurance and quality enhancement work consists of education evaluations with external experts. Below is an overview of the different steps involved in an education evaluation and results from conducted evaluations.

All first-, second- and third-cycle degree programmes are to be evaluated during the period 2019–2024. The education evaluations are to promote quality, and aim for the continued quality enhancement of the degree programmes.
