Quality Assurance

An internal Quality Assurance System in the field of training, has long been established in this University, it is called the Quality Project on the degree courses, and it is based on adequate procedures to monitor the effectiveness of the training path and the results of the training activities.



  • Within the Quality Assurance system, the Degree course makes it available to all who are interested in it, complete, up-to-date and easily available informations on objectives, training activities, applied resources and achieved results. This information is published in the Unique Annual Board of the Course (SUA-CdS) (published on the UniversItaly portal of MIUR)
