Internal Quality Control Standards

Within the framework of the European Higher Education Area, quality assurance systems are a key element for the efficient and effective functioning of the new teaching practices.

From the very beginning, the School of Architecture of the University of Navarra has made a commitment to the quality of the programs it offers. This commitment is reflected in:

  • The Institutional Assessment Program overseen by the ANECA, en el que participó con la evaluación de la titulación de Arquitectura Técnica (curso 2004-2005).

  • The implementation of Internal Quality Control Standards (SGIC), which was put into practice in the 2009-2010 academic year, provides ongoing monitoring and review of the School's degree programs in order to ensure their quality and continuous improvement. The SGIC of the School of Architecture has been implemented as part of the VERIFICA Program overseen by ANECA, in compliance with the new regulations.
