Audit of Åland University of Applied Sciences
1.5.2017 - 30.9.2018
The audit of the quality system at Åland University of Applied Sciences is conducted between May 2017 and September 2018. A three-day site visit is carried out 10-12 April 2018. The HEI has chosen Lifelong learning (Open UAS) as one of the audit targets (so called optional audit target). The audit is carried out by a Nordic audit team.
The objective of the FINEEC audit is to support Finnish HEIs in developing quality systems that correspond to the European principles of quality assurance and to demonstrate that functional and consistent quality assurance procedures are in place in Finland both in institutions and on the national level.
The participating HEIs have themselves decided on the development and form of their quality systems, and the audit assesses the comprehensiveness, functionality and effectiveness of those systems. The audits are guided by the principle of enhancement-led evaluation that has formed into a strong tradition in Finnish evaluation practice. The goal is to help HEIs to recognise the strengths, good practices and areas in need of development in their operations. The institutions are supported in their efforts to reach their strategic objectives and in directing future development activities in order to create a framework for the institutions’ continuous development.
FINEEC is a member of the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR) and is a full member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).
