Quality management in teaching and studying
Quality management at FAU
Our quality management system in teaching and studying provides support to the degree programmes and subjects in their ongoing development process and helps them comply with external requirements. Ensuring and developing the quality of teaching and studying is a key goal at FAU. In this context, the University uses the diversity of subjects that it offers as a strategic strength. A decentralised approach is taken to quality management, allowing all those involved to work as independently as possible and ensuring that the unique characteristics of individual subjects are taken into account. All quality assurance processes in teaching and studying are coordinated by a central QM team. The guidelines we use during this process are listed in the QM handbook.
The ‘4×4 model’ interlinks the four levels (University, faculty, degree programme and module) with the four dimensions of quality (quality culture, structural quality, process quality and result quality).
