Self-evaluation of study programmes

With the aim of monitoring and improving the quality of study programmes, regular self-evaluation is carried out for each active study programme, as defined in Article 6 of the Quality System Rules of the University of Ljubljana (UL). Self-evaluation of study programmes serves to ensure the quality of programme provision, and to monitor the current relevance and sustainability of the individual study programme.

Self-evaluation of study programmes is the basis for overhauling and modifying programmes, and represents a crucial mechanism for developing study programmes and the process of study at member faculties. Self-evaluation of study programmes is performed annually, and the conclusions of this process are incorporated into the Business Report and Quality Assurance Report of the member faculties and UL.

The method of performing self-evaluation of study programmes is defined in detail by the UL Guidelines for self-evaluation of study programmes. The self-evaluation process is further harmonised and defined through quality loops for self-evaluation of study programmes. The quality loops thereby facilitate appropriate and harmonised implementation of the process across the entire University. They provide information such as which activities needs to be done and when.

Monitoring satisfaction

Student surveys

The student survey is conducted with intention to monitor the opinion of students on individual subjects and the pedagogical work of higher education teachers and higher education associates, as defined in Higher Education Act (sl). Based on the results of the survey, UL member bodies and individual teachers and associates improve study programs, the manner of their implementation and pedagogical work. The conducting of UL student surveys is regulated in detail by the Rules on UL student surveys.

Analyses

Meta-analyses of self-evaluation reports on study programmes

In order to monitor the implementation of the self-evaluation of study programmes and to update the quality system, we periodically prepare a meta-analysis of self-evaluation reports of study programmes. As part of the meta-analysis, we check the operation of the self-evaluation mechanism by individual dimensions and check the quality of the self-evaluation and, above all, the presence of evaluation, which is of fundamental importance for the appropriate updating of study programmes.
