Quality at FFHS and SUPSI means providing a working and studying environment that guarantees quality throughout the entire school– particularly within the framework of the institutional mandate in the areas of teaching, research & development and service performance. To implement these concepts in practice, SUPSI has set up a customised quality assurance system (QAS) that is closely linked to the four-year strategy and its institutional values. This system takes into consideration the specific characteristics of both the school itself and its affiliates.
The SUPSI quality assurance system is composed of:
- The quality policy and strategy (QPS), which describes the fundamental principles of quality development and control within SUPSI.
- The quality assurance framework (QAF), which defines the structure and organisation of the quality assurance system within the quality policy and strategy.
- The quality handbook (QH), which covers priority key processes. The QH represents the operational implementation of the SUPSI quality assurance system within FFHS. FFHS plans to create its own QH to reflect the specific features of the university.
