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.
All the University’s Faculties have developed quality loops which served as a starting point for the development of the University-wide quality assurance system. In addition, the University of Bremen has already been successfully audited in several other areas and faces up to the challenges of quality management in other important dimensions.
The further development of quality management at the University of Bremen is to:
- strengthen the autonomy and controllability of the University of Bremen by anchoring responsibility for the conception, design and further development of the University’s study programs;
- Develop the existing mechanisms of quality assurance in teaching jointly and in partnership with the Faculties, and thus contribute to the improvement of the quality of studies and better documentation of our achievements in teaching.
