Quality assurance at Uniarts Helsinki

Quality assurance work strives to secure the transparency, smoothness and effectiveness of our everyday work and the way the university is managed.

According to the feedback given during the audit, Uniarts Helsinki’s strengths also include a genuine value-based and student-centred approach, a successful link to the working life and an active relationship with the university’s alumni.
