Audit of Saimaa University of Applied Sciences


The audit of the quality system of Saimaa University of Applied Sciences is conducted between February 2016 and April 2017. A three-day site visit is carried out in November 2016. The freely selected audit target chosen by Saimaa University of Applied Sciences is internationalisation. The audit is carried out by a national audit team. The audit team members are:

Rector Vesa Taatila, Turku University of Applied Sciences (chair)
Student Anna Kuusala, Tampere University of Technology
Talent Attraction Manager Laura Lindeman, Tredea
Vice-rector Anne Pohjus, Satakunta University of Applied Sciences
University Lecturer Turo Virtanen, University of Helsinki.

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).
