The Faculty's Internal Quality Assurance System

Internal Quality Assurance System

The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) has designed its own Internal Quality Assurance System (SGIQ/UAB) with the purpose of reflecting its firm commitment to offering quality academic programmes which incorporate measures for constant revision and improvement.

This system of quality management was designed in accordance with the directives from the AUDIT programme and the recommendations of three quality agencies: AQU Catalunya (Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency), ANECA (Spanish National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation) and ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education).

The Faculty of Science's internal quality assurance system shares the UAB's commitment and contributes to offering quality studies which guarantee the development of skills, abilities and aptitudes set down in the faculty's different academic programmes, with the aim of fulfilling the fundamental objective of providing undergraduate and graduate scientific training based on the needs and expectations of its users, and of society in general, and which facilitates the entrance into the labour market of its graduates.

On 23 November 2010, the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency (AQU) gave our faculty’s Internal Quality Assurance System (SGIQ) a positive evaluation within the framework of its AUDIT programme (certificate).

On 25 May 2021, the Faculty of Sciences obtained institutional accreditation (Ministry Resolution)

Royal Decree 1393/2007, 29 October, which establishes the organisation of official university education, is repealed by Royal Decree 822/2021, of 28 September, which establishes the organisation of university teaching and the quality assurance procedure.
