The UNamur quality approach

Since 2013, UNamur has embarked on the implementation of a Quality approach. This approach has undergone various changes since its creation and is gradually being expanded by the implementation of a more global approach and with the help of a multidisciplinary team.

Quality Management is a support for the quality policy in the fields of education, research and in the university services of the Institution.

Its missions are to set up, bring to life and perpetuate the University's Quality Management system by methodologically supporting and accompanying the dynamic of development towards a culture of evaluation and continuous improvement.
