The audit team identified the following as key strengths and recommendations:


  • Curriculum development is a systematic and participatory process that takes well into account of feedback from stakeholders and students.
  • UTU provides a rich menu of teaching methods and assessment methods to support students’ learning.
  • Teachers’ pedagogical skills and the development of teaching methods are strongly supported.
  • There is good interaction between the Student Union and the UTU’s management concerning education evaluations and the development of teaching.


  • UTU should continue to integrate multidisciplinarity even further into and across degree programmes.
  • UTU should engage with students in analysing their well-being issues and developing preventive measures.
  • UTU should find a variety of ways to give students feedback on their learning to support the achievement of learning objectives.
  • UTU should also ensure equal influencing possibilities for all students, including international students, continuous learning students and doctoral researchers.
