Quality at all levels
The Faculty is renowned for its quality work at all levels. In the quality assurance system, our students play a major role. As an example, students are represented in all decision-making bodies, as well as external representatives from the industry and the society. According to several evaluations and university rankings, both research and education are of a very high quality. The final report from the recent evaluation of our research can be found here.
The University’s systematic quality work of education covers quality assurance as well as quality development. All education is to be evaluated during the six-year cycle 2017-2022. The faculty’s model for educations at the undergradatute and graduate levels, as well as the model for educational evaluations at the postgraduate level is based on the Guidelines for Uppsala University’s Model for Review of Study Programmes. A Guide for educational evaluations at postgraduate level is available as support for the heads of the various evaluation units in the writing of the self-evaluation and as support to assessors in the assessment process.
Education of the highest quality is developed by committed teachers who are reflecting on the importance of the teaching, are looking for improvements, and are willing to try new methods. In order to achieve education of the highest quality, there is ongoing extensive work on educational development.
Equal opportunities are both a matter of equity and quality. In addition to equality schemes for both employees and students, we take measures to introduce and high-light under-represented groups.
A multidisciplinary holistic approach is a cardinal principle at Uppsala University. Research and education are stimulated and advanced by the encounter between the varying perspectives of the Disciplinary Domains.
