TED University quality strategy consists of two components: Fitness for purpose and compliance to international standards. The purpose can be found in TED University’s vision, mission, basic policies, and in equivalent expressions at faculty level. International standards are delineated by the Bologna Process and the European Standards and Guidelines (ENQA). Although there have been different approaches, adoption of both “fitness for purpose” and “compliance to standards” by a newly founded university serves for prioritizing the compliance to minimum standards and for eventually nesting a quality approach in order to realize these internalized missions and objectives. As a result of benchmarking activities, additional standards are to be expected to append to those existing standards established as a basis of collaboration with international partners.
Internal mechanisms for quality improvement and assurance at TED University include TED University Quality Management Procedures, which serves as a guidelines/set of instructions on how to perform the structuring procedures and activities, and the annual self-evaluation reports on how these activities have been realized. TED University Self-Evaluation Report, which is an assessment of education, research and service functions for annual and quadrennial periods, is based on Department’s Self-Evaluation Report prepared by respective departments and the Annual Faculty Report prepared by the academic members.
