Quality assurance

The University is accountable for the quality and standards of its services and is committed to:

  • promoting the culture of quality within its premises;
  • establishing the procedures of the Quality Assurance (QA);
  • improving the quality of teaching and research activities and the efficiency of the structures that carry them out.

The Quality Board supervises and implements the proper functioning of the procedures.

Our performances are periodically evaluated by the National Agency for the Evaluation of the University and Research Systems (Anvur). Assessments involve both the accreditation of the teaching activities (AVA) and the quality of research (VQR).

In the last evaluation  UPO was ranked among the best universities in Italy. We are now waiting for the accreditation visit (November 2016) and for the results of the 2nd VQR process (2011-14), which are expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
