With this purpose, we cooperate with other universities, colleges, polytechnics, institutions, and businesses on the continual improvement of educational processes and programs and on harmonization of curricula with the Bologna Declaration principles and with the generally accepted guidelines and standards in education.
The quality management system at University North is based on guidelines and standards of the ESG and ISO standards, and the documentation, monitoring and periodic review of study programs, student assessment, expertise and the quality of teaching and administrative staff, learning resources and student support, access to information and public information.
Efficient and effective teaching processes, systematic and team approach, continual improvement of all activities, the involvement of all stakeholders, especially the students, are the basic operating principles of the quality assurance system. The student is in the center of all activities at University North. It is essential to be familiar with our students’ opinion on the teachers, programs and the teaching mode, as well as the opinion of our graduates and their employers. In this recognition of their satisfaction we strive to take measures towards the improvement in order to overcome their expectations.
