Quality Assurance

Since the early 2000s, Alma Mater Studiorum has participated in national-level tests performed in the field of evaluation of teaching and research.

Since the early 2000s, Alma Mater Studiorum has participated in the experimental work on the evaluation of teaching and research that has been carried out at national level.

Building on this experience, the University has promoted the progressive adoption of a Quality Assurance (QA) system that is consistent with the European standards and guidelines set by the ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education).

The Quality Assurance System intends to:

  • facilitate active and informed participation by all members of the University community in the achievement of improvement objectives that have been defined clearly, communicated and agreed;
  • involve the academic community by providing simple, timely, up-to-date and complete information;
  • build a culture of quality, educating all levels and roles within the community about the QA procedures to be followed.

The application of these principles must result in documented and measurable improvements in the University’s teaching, research and third mission activities, as well as in its administration and management. The Quality Assurance System of the University of Bologna has been assessed by ANVUR, following a visit from a Commission of Evaluation Experts, and MIUR granted the cyclic accreditation to the University and Degree Programmes with Ministerial Decree 362, of 11 April 2019.

The full Evaluation Report is available on the ANVUR website.
