The Unit for Quality Assurance supports the University of Vienna in its endeavour to ensure a high level of quality in its teaching and research activities and in its programmes of study. It contributes to the further development of the university quality assurance system and the concomitant quality criteria, methods and instruments. The ongoing endeavour to adhere to international standards promotes a culture of quality and strengthens the University of Vienna's ability to be responsible for and manage its own affairs.
"Quality assurance is an inherent task of all university members, irrespective of whether or not special instruments are available for the specific purpose." (University of Vienna 2020 Development Plan)
