Quality Audit 2015

The quality assurance system of the University of Vienna was certified for seven years in 2015.

The Act on Quality Assurance in Higher Education of 2011 (Hochschul-Qualitätssicherungsgesetz, HS-QSG) requires all Austrian universities to have their quality assurance systems evaluated and certified by an external agency. In 2015 the University of Vienna conducted the audit with the Swiss Agency of Accreditation and Quality Assurance (AAQ).

In the course of the auditing procedure, the University compiled a comprehensive self-evaluation report and was assessed by a group of five external assessors. In June 2015, the Swiss Accreditation Council certified the University of Vienna’s quality assurance system, subject to the requirement that the University adds a process pertaining to examinations to its quality assurance system.

The University submitted a timely report on the planned measures to the audit agency by the deadline in May 2017. In June 2017, the Accreditation Council confirmed that the University has fulfilled the requirement.
