The University of Helsinki is Finland’s oldest, largest and most diverse institution of higher education conducting research and providing education based on research. The University of Helsinki consists of 11 Faculties, representing all academic disciplines with the exception of technology and business, and it operates on four campuses. The strategic aim of the University of Helsinki is to reinforce its position among leading European universities both in research and teaching. To achieve this aim, the University regularly carries out international evaluations of its research and education. The evaluations are a part of the University’s quality assurance system. The previous evaluation of education was conducted in 2001−2002; this evaluation focused on all the fields of education represented at the University, language and communication studies, and subject teacher education.
The present publication gives the outcomes of and reflections on the review process carried out in March 2008 for the accreditation of six university degree programmes given at the Centro Universitario de la Costa Sur (CUCSUR), in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. The application of the evaluation methodology used by AQU (a recognised European QA agency), together with the use of the European standards for quality assurance stemming from the Bologna Process, represents a unique experience and a new development and also offers new ways to open up cooperation between the university systems in Latin America and Europe.
The present publication is the report of a benchmarking project between ACQUIN (Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute), AUQA (Australian Universities Quality Agency) and HETAC (Higher Education and Training Awards Council). Each of these agencies underwent a self-review and external evaluation, which provided the basis for the benchmarking relative to internationally accepted standards. The report also draws on the European Standards and Guidelines and INQAAHE Guidelines of Good Practice as a basis of facilitating organisational exchanges and understanding.
