Quality and assessment
We constantly develop the quality of education, RDI activities, business services and support services based on the user and customer feedback we receive.
Xamk was established when Kymenlaakso and Mikkeli universities of applied sciences merged in the beginning of 2017. The Finnish Education Evaluation Centre (FINEEC) conducted an audit of both universities in 2012 and 2013 and awarded the institutions with a quality label. Both institutions were also added to FINEEC’s audit register for higher education institutions.
All for the quality!
In addition to feedback and surveys we self-evaluate the quality of our operations. We also participate in national evaluations of higher education institutions. Our strategic goal is to stand out from other institutions especially with the quality of our education, up-to-date operations, RDI and internationality. Our quality system corresponds to the European quality assurance principles and recommendations for higher education institutions according to the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG).
