Universitas Gadjah Mada is committed to improving its education and teaching quality that can compete internationally. That was said by Rector of UGM, Prof Ir. Dwikorita Karnawati, M.Sc., Ph.D., when receiving assessors from ASEAN University Network on Higher Education for Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) in the Multimedia Room UGM on Monday (22/8).
The Rector said such improvement was done by involving AUN-QA, which is expected to boost the study programme. “To obtain quality assurance certification in ASEAN, the presence of the AUN QA is very important,” she said.
The Rector added that three study programme to be assessed are Agribusiness, Philosophy, and Politics and Government Studies from 22-24 August. Vice-Director of AUN-QA, Dr. Choltis Dhirathiti, said the team would involve 8 assessors to evaluate education and teaching in those three study programmes. The assessors come from the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, and Thailand.
According to Choltis Dhirathiti, the quality assurance process at higher learning institutions is expected to benefit the society more to get better quality education. “We hope what we do would benefit the people of Indonesia and Asean in the effort to improve study programme,” he said.
