Audit of the National Defence University


The audit of the National Defence University (NDU) quality system is conducted between February 2016 and June 2017. A three-day site visit is carried out in November 2016. The freely selected audit target chosen by the NDU is continuing education. The audit is carried out by a national audit team. The members of the audit team are:

Mikko Luoma, Research Director, University of Vaasa (chair)
Petri Alkiora, Chief of Education, Police University College
Pirjo Hiidenmaa, Professor, University of Helsinki
Ilmari Käihkö, Phd Candidate, Swedish Defence University and Department of Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University
Kirsi Levä, Director of Development, Finnish Safety and Chemicals Agency Tukes

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).
