Information systems and public information
As per the UCPH quality-assurance policy, SCIENCE has devised a range of parameters to be used in connection with monitoring developments on the study programmes and ensuring that they meet the highest international standards of quality and relevance for higher education.
The data collated is used in various quality-assurance procedures to ensure that management is informed regularly and systematically about the status of the study programmes and the challenges they face. The document Monitoring of management information includes a list of the areas that SCIENCE monitors, and the contexts in which the data is used.
A number of the areas that SCIENCE monitors are subject to quantifiable standards. These standards are set when drawing up strategies and action plans and revised one a year according to Procedure for revision of measurable quality standards in the field of education.
Pursuant to the Act on Transparency and Openness on Study Programmes, SCIENCE publishes updated and objective information about the study programmes and degrees offered by the faculty. SCIENCE publishes information in accordance with UCPH’s quality-assurance policy for study programmes and associated guidelines.
