Roles and responsibilities in quality assurance
The KTH Quality Policy is based on the principle that KTH has clearly formalised roles, responsibilities and administrative support functions for quality assurance.
The Faculty Council has overall responsibility for issues relating to the quality of education, research and community interaction. The Council is chaired by the Dean of Faculty. It represents the entire faculty and acts as an advisory body to the President.
The President and University Board are responsible for internal organisation issues and financial management. The University Administration supports university management in e.g. policy making, coordination, planning and evaluation. Within the University Administration, Planning, Quality Assurance and Administrative Law provides support on quality assurance matters.
The KTH Schools are responsible for the quality of their own operations. Each school is headed by a Head of School. Each school appoints a Director of First and Second Cycle Education, and a Director of Third Cycle Education.
