The Faculty constantly monitors, promotes and ensures the development and progress of the internal quality system in all areas of its operation through various procedures and activities. The undergraduate study programme “Slovene Studies” and the postgraduate master’s and doctoral study programme “Slovene Studies” are accredited in accordance with the National Criteria for Accreditation and External Evaluation of Higher Education Institutions and Study Programmes.
The planning of self-evaluation at the Faculty is evident from the Rules of Procedure of the New University, which regulates the system of monitoring, evaluation and quality assurance at the university level and the Rules of Procedure of the Faculty of Slovene and International Studies, which regulates the quality monitoring system at the faculty level. The action plan for the future self-evaluation period can be seen in the Faculty Action Plan.
The purpose of self-evaluation is quality planning, organization, operation and development of all activities of the faculty, defined in the vision, mission and goals, as well as resources for achieving set short-term and strategic goals of the faculty.
The quality of the Faculty is monitored by two committees, namely the Faculty Committee for Quality and the Quality and Evaluation Committee of the New University, which include all key interested parties, representatives of individual fields or activities, i.e. employees, students and the external environment (e.g. employers). The Committees cooperate in formulating proposals, highlighting areas for special attention in the future and proposing appropriate measures to improve performance.
The quality system is based on the Deming Cycle (PDCA) model: planning (Plan-P), implementation (Do – D), verification (Check – C) and action (Act – A).
The quality feedback loop is reflected in the operating model described above, with an emphasis on continuous process improvement, which follows as input for the new operating cycle of the quality system itself. Quality control or the so-called closing of the quality loop takes place in two stages, at the faculty level and at the university level.
