Quality Assurance

At Oulu UAS quality work is done daily. The entire staff, students and stakeholders take part in the quality assurance work by participating in working groups and providing feedback. We believe that good results will be achieved when the operations are planned, monitored, evaluated and developed systematically. 

Principles of Quality Assurance in Finnish Higher Education Institutions (HEIs)

In Finland the HEI can decide on its own QA system. The HEIs are responsible for the quality of their own operations and results. The Finnish Education Evaluation Centre (FINEEC) evaluates the performance of the HEIs every sixth year. Read more about the external evaluations in Finland.

Quality system at Oulu UAS

The quality system is open to everyone at Oulu UAS and covers all our operations. It describes roles, responsibilities and our shared ways of working. The quality system supports us in the implementation of the strategy.

We have Quality Label

The Finnish Education Evaluation Centre has audited our Quality System twice: in 2012 and in 2018. We have passed the audit both times. Our quality label is valid for six years (22.3.2018 - 22.3.2024). HEIs with valid audit labels are listed in the FINEEC audit register.
