Steps to Quality Assurance

At the strategic level the study quality management system has been improved over the past three years at the University. This was caused by certain changes in the management structure of the university, changes in the boundaries of responsibilities of academic and administrative departments, increasing the offer of study programs, establishment of branches and other objective factors.

Internal quality assurance system until 2023 was defined in the ‘EHU ‘Regulation on Study and Science Quality Policy(under the Order No. 123-20 of the Rector of EHU of 16-05-2017), ‘Quality Manual’ (Order No. 01-131 of the Rector of the European Humanities University of 14 May 2013), ‘Concept development and implementation of a quality management system’ (under the Order No.01-131 of the Rector of EHU of 14-05-2013) and by performance indicators.

Changes in the structure of the university, the expansion of the offer of study programs and other factors led to the fact that in 2022 discussions regarding the change and improvement of the university’s quality management regulation were started in the academic community, valid internal documents were reviewed and new ones were prepared or old valid ones were updated. In this way, the main and most important strategic quality management regulation documents defining the quality management system and determining quality criteria and objectives were approved in 2023: ‘Quality Assurance Policy of the European Humanities University’ and ‘Description of internal studies quality assurance of the European Humanities University’.

All study-related procedures and activities are regulated by separate internal documents (rules, procedures, methodical recommendations) dedicated to different areas of activities. In this way, the unified system of procedures and rules, regulating all the main and auxiliary study processes, research/art activities, administrative processes was created. Separate internal legal acts regulate the main study processes, conditions for performance, activities: preparation of study programs, ensuring the adequacy of teachers’ qualifications and regular evaluation of performance, students’ admission, conducting studies, monitoring the quality of processes, improving the process up to the completion of studies and providing study material and methodological resources, plagiarism prevention, complaints and appeals rules, etc.
