The Finnish Education Evaluation Cenre (FINEEC, Karvi) will audit Aalto University's quality system in January 2023. The audit will assess the appropriateness, functionality and effectiveness of the university's quality system. The audit focuses on the university's operating methods, the processes by which it pursues its own goals. The utilisation and effectiveness of follow-up information and feedback in the planning and development of operations is also central to auditing. The subject of the review is therefore the procedures by which the university maintains and develops the quality of its operations.

The objectives of the quality system audit are:

  • evaluate how the university's quality system serves as a tool for quality management and development
  • evaluate the quality system in relation to the four audit areas and make a presentation on whether the university passes the audit or requires a re-audit
  • helps the university to identify the strengths, good practices and areas for development of its operations
  • to support the university in achieving its own strategic goals and directing development activities
