Audit of the University of Ljubljana in 2023-2024

FINEEC conducts an audit of the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia. Audit is part of FINEEC`s fee-paid operations.

A three-day audit visit at the University of Ljubljana is carried out 10-12 October 2023. The audit report is to be published in February 2024 on FINEEC’s digital audit platform. The audit is carried out by an international review team in English.

The audit is conducted by the following audit team:

  • Vice President Marja Sutela, University of Tampere, Finland (chair)
  • Associate professor Lena Gumaelius, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
  • Student Damon Mohebbi, Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, Germany
  • Head of the department Attila Pausits, Danube University Krems, Austria
  • Director Marja-Leena Rinkineva, City of Helsinki, Finland

The purpose of the audit is

  • to evaluate whether the quality work in the HEI meets the European quality assurance standards,
  • to assess whether the quality system produces relevant information for the implementation of the strategy and the continuous development of the HEI’s activities, and whether it results in effective enhancement activities,
  • to encourage internationalisation, experimenting and a creative atmosphere at HEIs, and to accumulate open and transparent information on quality work at Finnish HEIs.

The focus of the audit is on the procedures used by the HEI to maintain and enhance the quality of its activities.

The FINEEC audits cover all the core duties of the HEI, that is, education, research /RDI and societal engagement. The strategic development of HEIs is supported in the audit by offering HEIs the possibility to select one of the evaluation areas. The University has chosen QA of Joint Educational Offer as one of the evaluation areas.

Benchlearning is one of the methods applied in the audits. The benchlearning partner of the University of the Ljubljana is EUTOPIA network and the benchlearning target is QA of Joint Educational Offer.

The enhancement-led approach is applied in the audits. The goal of enhancement-led evaluation is to involve staff, students and stakeholders of a higher education institution (HEI) in recognising strengths, good practices and enhancement areas in the HEI’s activities. The aim is also to support HEIs in achieving their own objectives, thus creating a premise for the continuous development of HEIs.
