Review of SLU:s quality assurance process
During 2019, SLU:s quality assurance process is reviewed by the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ).
The review is part of the national system for quality assurance of higher education. It is based on a written self evaluation (only in Swedish) and two site visits at SLU:
- 18 September 2019
- 26-27 November 2019
The following persons are members of the assessors group: Mats Larhed (Uppsala University; chair and expert), Tove Blytt Holmen (The Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education - NOKUT, and associate professor at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences; expert), Joakim Edsjö (Stockholm University; expert), Catherine Hill (Swedish Medical Products Agency; working life representative), John Lindskog (University of Borås; student representative).
- verify that the HEIs ensure that the courses and programmes at all levels comply with applicable laws, ordinances, and the ESG.
- focus on how well the HEIs' quality assurance processes, including follow-up, measures and feedback procedures, help to systematically ensure and enhance the quality of the courses and programmes at all levels.
- contribute to improving the HEIs' quality since the assessors in their reports highlight both identified good examples, and areas in need of improvement.
