The principles on which the quality assurance and enhancement are built in the University are developmental, to ensure continuous improvement through the involvement of all relevant parties within and outside the university. Quality assurance rests on several principles:
- Quality assurance and enhancement are developmental and are part of the University’s strategy for ensuring the highest quality learning, teaching, curricula, and research. Quality assurance is an integral part of the University Strategic plan for 2020- 2025.
- Quality assurance contributes the development of a quality culture. Responsibility for the assurance and enhancement of learning and teaching quality rests with every member of staff involved in teaching delivery.
