7 universities selected to conduct certification pilot process

Among 16 applications, 7 universities have been selected to participate in the pilot process for certification of implementation of Internal Quality Assurance Systems based on the AUDIT model.

This selection, plus those made by the Basque and Galician agencies, makes up a representative enough range to provide model validation.

ANECA´s main criterion has been to achieve a selection including the following profiles:

  • Public and private universities.
  • Engineering and non-engineering schools. 
  • Sciences and non-science faculties.
  • Universities from regions with/without its own quality agency.  

According to these criteria, applicants were grouped and the following centres have finally been selected:

UNIVERSIDAD CENTRO
Technical University of Madrid School of Technical Architecture, School of Industrial Engineering
University of Murcia Faculty of Chemistry, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine
University of Extremadura Faculty of Sciences for Physical Activity and Sport, School of Agriculture Engineering
University of Jaén Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Experimental Sciences
University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Faculty of Geography and History, Faculty of Translation and Interpreting
San Jorge University Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Communication
University of Zaragoza School of Engineering and Architecture

ANECA would like to publicly thank all the applicants for their interest, compromise, and their will to implement the actions included in the pilot programme in the near future.  

Final results will be available at this website, as set out in the Guide of the Certification Model.
