Internal Links

The QAB is linked in working relations to the top management and to units implementing the QA agenda with a view to:

  • Constantly supply them with updated evaluation schedules and instruments;

  • Facilitate unit and programme evaluations;

  • Provide unit heads with feedback on internal (self) and external evaluation results;

  • Advise units on proper implementation of improvements which have been recommended by review teams; and

  • Ensure that units adhere to the established QA procedures.
