Quality assurance

Quality of the programme Master of Science in Marine and Lacustrine Science and Management (Oceans & Lakes):

The quality of each of the study programmes of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (coordinating university of the master programme Oceans & Lakes) is closely monitored. The university uses a variety of quality assurance instruments to do that and involves both internal and external interested parties. Based on the results achieved from the various quality assurance instruments, the course councils work continuously on improving the quality of education.

The quality of the study programmes is also assessed in overarching processes. In those interrelated processes, the university looks at the quality cycle, quantitative and qualitative data on the study programme, the results of all quality assurance instruments and how they are followed up.. This is carried out by means of a quality review organised by the VUB in the context of its quality assurance system or by means of a review by an external review or accreditation body. In both cases, the result is a public report.

A resume of the latest quality review of the programme can be found here. This includes interviews with representatives of the course council, including students, internal and external peers and experts.
