  • The institutional review of affiliated institutions in Catalonia
    There are forty-seven (47) affiliated institutions in Catalonia at the present time. Most of these institutions either currently offer recognised university degrees or will offer them from the next academic year onwards. Given the circumstances of the university system in Catalonia being brought into line with the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), the Directorate General for Universities (DGU) is seeking to ensure that all affiliated institutions comply with certain minimum quality criteria. The Board of Planning of the Inter-university Council of Catalonia has established that affiliated institutions wishing to introduce new degrees are now subject to a process of institutional review.

  • Results of the survey on the satisfaction with the 2008 academic staff assessment
    A formal survey of the applicants' satisfaction with the assessment process has been carried out for the first time since the academic staff assessment programme was set up in 2003. A questionnaire was sent to all those applying for pre-selection tenure-track lecturer reports and the accreditation of research (assistant professors) and advanced research (full professors), in the first call for applications made in 2008. The initiative is a result of the programme to enhance the assessment processes and the satisfaction of users of the services provided by AQU Catalunya.
