Quality of the degrees
Design of the degrees

The implementation project for an official degree adapted to the EHEA has three very different phases:

  1. The design of the degree
  2. Details and development of the teaching
  3. Public assessment of the adaptation of the teaching to a series of quality criteria that help achieve accreditation.

The UOC has set up different internal initiatives to take on the adaptation process to the European Higher Education Area with maximum assured quality. With regard to the first phase, an internal protocol has been defined for the design and creation of the proposed bachelor's degrees and university master's degrees that have been adapted to the EHEA to ensure the completion of a series of phases in which faculty and administrative staff participate.
