Quality Assurance constitutes one of the strategic priorities for the University of Patras, and its main objective is the continuous improvement of the quality for Education and Research.

The University of Patras is the first Higher Education Institution in Greece that recognized the importance of quality assurance and conducted an external pilot evaluation in December 1999, in the context of the processes involved in the Rector’s Synod – CRE (The Club of Rectors of Europe).

Subsequently, in October 2018, it became the first Higher Education Institution in Greece to certify that its Internal Quality Assurance System (IQAS) is in compliance with the Hellenic Quality Assurance and Accreditation Agency (HQA) Quality Standards as well as the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG 2015).

Based on the existing legal framework, the Quality Assurance Unit (MODIP) of the University of Patras is the central coordinating body of all the Institution's Quality Assurance and Evaluation processes (Greek Government Gazette II 410 of 12 February 2018).

In collaboration with the Internal Evaluation Teams (OMEA) of the Academic Units, MODIP deals with:

  • The electronic questionnaires completion from the students, that are used for teaching assessment
  • The electronic questionnaires completion from the members of the Academic staff for subjects involving education and research
  • The Annual Reports of the Academic Units
  • The External Evaluation Reports
  • The Accreditation Reports of the Academic Units

The process of the Accreditation of the Undergraduate Study Programs has already been completed for the majority of the Academic Units of the University of Patras with very positive results.

The Accreditation Reports and Certifications of the Academic Units, as well as various kinds information about Quality Assurance in the University of Patras, are provided on the website: http://modip.upatras.gr.
