The ASEAN University Network-Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) has assessed four of UGM study programs, Veterinary Medicine, Anthropology, Psychology, and Mechanical Engineering from 21-23/9.
Prof. Dr. L. Hartanto Nugroho, M.Agr, committee chairman, said the assessment was to get a bench marking that UGM programmes have met AUN-QA standards. Certificates will be issued after the assessment that will last for four years
Hartanto Nugroho explained the assessment covers 15 standards, including competence of graduates, specifications of study programmes, learning programme, quality of lecturers, staff, and students, infrastructure as well as programme evaluation and outputs.
“Out of 68 of UGM study programmes, from 2009 – 2014 only 17 study programmes have been assessed,” he said.
In the run-up to the ASEAN Community in 2015, the AUN-QA assessment aims at improving quality gradually from national to international scale.
