Vision of quality

Care for quality with active monitoring of all activities is the basic value and mission in all fields of our activity.

Our lecturers and external collaborators are involved in the design of educational, scientific-research and professional activity through departments and other bodies of the faculty as well as directly. Students have the possibility of expressing their opinions about quality through their representatives in all important bodies of the faculty, directly in the processes of the faculty and they can also express their suggestions, comments, criticism and praise through the tutor system. Students also evaluates the implementation of individual courses and programs through student surveys.

In long-term strategy of the established transparent quality assurance system we are following the establishment of a transparent quality assurance system with quality monitoring (regular annual self-evaluations, periodic external evaluations) based on indicators and criteria that take into account both foreign and national standards. Quality is assured in all the basic fields of activity of the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana: educational, research and management. An important contribution to quality assurance is continuous communication to both the internal and external public.
