Publication of the new Guide to the Certification of IQAs Implementation

AQU Catalunya has published the new Guide to the certification of IQAs implementation (internal quality assurance systems). A revision of the Guide was undertaken following completion of both the pilot assessment procedure and the process of public consultation. There was a high level of participation by Catalan universities in this updated revision, which reinforces the high level of interest in this QA procedure.

A FAQ section with frequently asked questions has also been included, with information regarding common queries concerning IQAs certification.

Faculties and schools with a certified IQAs, as well as accreditation for at least 50% of their first degree provision and 50% of their Master's degree provision, may apply for institutional accreditation. The AQU Catalunya director, Martí Casadesús, presented this approach to certification at the informal European "Quality Audit Network", held in Barcelona on 8 and 9 May.
