Quality assurance and follow-up

Published: 17 June 2020

The Faculty Boards have established how the process of third-cycle studies will be quality assured and how and when follow-up will take place for aims and objectives to be achieved with quality and efficiency. The perception of the educational process by doctoral students, supervisors and alumni will be followed up through recurrent questionnaires. The Boards have also established how and when supervision of delegated decision rights to Heads of Department will take place (LTU-3180-2007).

Follow-up will take place annually when Heads of Department report to Faculty Boards what quality-improvement measures have been taken in their Departments (LTU-2360-2015). 

Every two years, alt the university´s research subjects are evaluated. The evaluation is made according to a model which include a number of quantitative measures, self-evaluation and dialogue, summary and identification of possble action needs (LTU-4769-2019).

The handbook for third-cycle studies contains internal guidelines, checklists, forms and templates and references to the Higher Education Ordinance and national laws and contribute to the clarification of rules and guidelines for third-cycle studies.
