Internal quality assurance and the social role of the higher education institution
Internal quality assurance at the Faculty is a set of measures and activities that systematically plan, monitor, regulate, evaluate and improve the quality of the Faculty’s scientific, artistic and professional activities, and promote professional and ethical standards with the pursuit of excellence in work.
The internal quality assurance system at the Faculty is defined by the Quality Policy, the Regulations on the Quality Assurance System , the Quality Assurance Manual, the Development Strategy of the KBF of the University of Zagreb 2019-2024, and the Strategic Research Programme 2015-2020. The process of quality assurance and improvement is integrated into the regular teaching, scientific, artistic and professional activities of the Faculty.
Based on its mission and vision, the Faculty is committed to the continuous development of a culture of study quality, in particular:
- continuous development of quality of study based on European standards and guidelines (with particular regard to the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area – ESG), the Holy See Guidelines (AVEPRO), national and university criteria and quality standards, with the active encouragement of the role of all participants
- development of study programmes based on the latest scientific research, which lead to the achievement of a high level of learning outcomes
- ensuring academic integrity, ethics and responsibility of all staff and students
- continuous monitoring and systematic improvement of the effectiveness of its educational, scientific, artistic and professional activities
- responsible and transparent financial operations aimed at the development of the Faculty.
All employees are expected to take personal responsibility for the quality of their work, and the management of the Faculty is committed to providing and developing the necessary resources for the implementation of this Policy. External stakeholders are actively involved in the internal quality assurance system (an external stakeholder is a member of the Quality Assurance Committee), students (students have their representatives in the Faculty Board, as well as in the Quality Assurance Committee) and Alumni .
