Quality assurance system
Halmstad University’s quality assurance system is based on various quality cycles. For each cycle, activities that compose parts of the quality assurance system are defined and each activity has regulatory documents.
The quality assurance work is signified by systematics, follow-up and learning, which among other things include a clear, committed and competent leadership, collegial participation in the quality assurance work, visibility and long-term vision.
The structure of the quality assurance system is based on Halmstad University's quality assurance policy, approved by the University Governing Board.
The quality assurance system is a a tool for effective and systematic quality assurance work. Halmstad University's quality assurance system consists of a number of separate quality systems which together contribute to a collective whole. These components are:
- System for strategic management and planning of activities
- Quality assurance system for core operational areas (education and research)
- Quality assurance systems for administrative support are also connected to the Vice-Chancellor's decision and delegation of authority ordinance. From this, the areas of responsibility for the Schools, School Advisory Boards, Research and Education Board, University Administrative Support, and others, are made clear.
The quality assurance system has a clearly defined division of roles and responsibilities that ties in with the Vice-Chancellor's decision and delegation of authority ordinance. Additionally, the Vice-Chancellor has appointed a particular board, the Advisory Board for Quality Assurance, which is responsible for drawing up policy proposals, following up the quality assurance work of the organisation, stimulating quality development as well as developing the quality assurance system.
One important part of the quality assurance at Halmstad University is to ensure that students are involved in the development of education, for example through course evaluations. All courses are therefore evaluated through the same procedure, based on guidelines from the Research and Education Board.
