Programme quality

Within each study programme, quality development and improvement policies rest on the essential contribution of students, the Quality Assurance (QA) Delegate, the Teaching Staff-Student Joint Committee (CPDS), and the Review Group.

This section contains documents and information to help you become familiar with, and play a proactive role in the Quality Assurance (QA) process.

Students
They are a fundamental part of the QA process, and can contribute in two ways:

  1. by participating in the local bodies for assessing and improving the quality of study programmes (primarily the Teaching Staff-Student Joint Committee);
  2. by answering the student survey before registering for an exam, thus making their opinion known to the University quality bodies.

The QA Delegate for the study programme
He/she plays a leading role in QA, and participates directly in the study programme QA management processes as part of the Review Group. Moreover, he/she works in close contact with the Joint Teaching Staff-Student Committee and with the University bodies that deal with teaching quality.

The Joint Teaching Staff-Student Committee (CPDS)
Consisting of an equal number of teachers and students, it is a permanent observatory of educational activities that monitors the training offer, the quality of teaching, and the service provided to students by professors and researchers.

The Review Group
Established within the Academic Board, it is in charge of preparing the Annual Monitoring Report and the Cyclic Review Report.

In addition to the University Quality Assurance system, the Departments connected to the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences of the University of Milan have adopted a Quality Management System, which is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2015, and integrated with the Self-Assessment, Periodic Evaluation and Accreditation System (AVA) [of the Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of University and Research Systems (ANVUR)].

The Quality Management System applies to the design, planning and delivery of the study programmes of classes L-25, L-26, LM-7, LM-69, LM-70, LM-73, and the related support services (orientation, Erasmus, internship and thesis, tutoring), with a view to increasing stakeholder satisfaction, and continuously improving our curricula.
