Internal Quality Assurance System

In 2009, the UOC approved the University's Internal Quality Assurance System Manual as part of the AUDIT programme. This programme is endorsed by the quality rating agencies to make it easier to implement and develop an internal quality assurance system for university education. This manual, certified by AQU Catalunya in 2009, allowed all the activities aimed at guaranteeing course quality, broadening stakeholder participation mechanisms and embedding the review and continuous improvement system to be compiled in one single document.

Following revision of the manual, which pointed out new requirements and challenges that needed new answers, an updated version of the manual was written and approved on 4 December 2017.

The figure below shows the structure of the current Internal Quality Assurance System:

This Internal Quality Assurance System has been designed in line with international quality standards. This means that it focuses on processes, in the broad sense, to accommodate and integrate any process that the UOC may identify and develop in the future.
