Internal Quality Assurance System (SGIQ) of the Faculty of Communication Sciences

(Documentation available only in Catalan)

The Internal Quality Assurance System (IQAS framework) of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona reflects the firm commitment of the university to offer quality training programmes that include measures to assess their continuous evaluation and improvement.

The Internal Quality Assurance System of Faculty has been designed in accordance with the program AUDIT directives and the recommendation of the following quality agencies: AQU (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 Internal Quality Assurance System of the Faculty of Communication supports the commitment of the UAB to offer quality studies that guarantee the development of the competences, abilities and aptitudes established in the different training programmes. This leads to the accomplishment of the main objective which is to offer undergraduate and postgraduate scientific training based on the needs and expectations of its users, and of society in general, while facilitating entry 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 (IQAS) a positive evaluation within the framework of its AUDIT programme (certificate).
