The European Higher Education Area is structured around the principles of quality, mobility, diversity and competitiveness, and is oriented towards the achievement of strategic objectives such as the adoption of a system of easily comparable degrees, quality assurance, the structuring of university studies into two levels (undergraduate and postgraduate) and the implementation of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS credits).
The Degree has a Quality Management System that ensures its control, revision and continuous improvement. Furthermore, the centre in which the degree is taught, or the university, as the case may be, has procedures associated with quality assurance and formal mechanisms for the approval, control, periodic review and improvement of the degree, and establishes mechanisms for informing students and society about the degree and its objectives.
The system is maintained and continuously improved through the implementation of the quality policy and the objectives of the Faculty's strategic plan, the measurement and analysis of stakeholder satisfaction, the analysis of process results, audits and the review of the system by the Centre's Quality Committee.
The Dean and the Centre's Quality Committee, with the support of the Quality Unit, are responsible for the Quality Management System.
The Faculty of Theology at the University of Deusto has a Quality Management System. This system is subject to a continuous improvement process through the analysis of process indicators and the procedure established for this purpose.
One of the main objectives of the University of Deusto is to achieve the satisfaction of all the stakeholders of the university community with regard to the activities and services it offers.
