The University of Bremen received system accreditation by the Swiss agency AAQ on 16 September 2016.
One of the main aspects of quality management at the University of Bremen is that it offers sufficient scope for subject-specific features. Quality objectives and the accordant measures are organized in decentralized responsibility in the respective areas of teaching and learning in the subjects and Faculties. Together with the University leadership, this leads to the development of cross-faculty quality objectives. Quality management is characterized by the pursuit of continuous improvement to learning and study conditions.
Every seven years, all of the University’s degree programs undergo a program evaluation. The aim of the procedure for the evaluation of existing programs is the ongoing quality assurance and, if necessary, the possibility to make subsequent adjustments.
The Office of the Dean, represented by the respective Dean of Studies of the department operating the degree program, is responsible for the timely and proper implementation of the procedure. The coordination of procedures is carried out by the respective Study Center. The overall central coordination lies with the teaching and learning unit.
On 2.05.2017 the external inspection of the BA studyprogram Public Health/Gesundheitswissenschaften took place. On 26.06.2017 the rector's office decided about the accreditation of the study program until 30.09.2024 without any condition.
