Sofia's profile

The faculty council is responsible for the quality of education

FR has an overall responsibility for developing the quality of, among other things, KTH's education; why FR should:

  • manage and develop KTH's quality assurance system,
  • act as a link between KTH's management and teachers,
  • responsible for creating good conditions for interdisciplinary collegial exchange.

Our podcast host Johan Fridell and programme manager Joakim Lilliesköld talk to Sofia A discussion about the Faculty Council's work in revising KTH's quality assurance system for education: the ambition has been to make the system more value-creating. The new system will begin to be rolled out from next year.
