The University's core values – quality culture, collegiality, academic freedom and student participation – form the basis and the environments in which teaching and research are conducted form the pillar in the middle. It is in these environments – in departments, research groups, teaching teams, and courses and programmes – that the practical work on quality is carried out. Around the pillar there are supportive structures for quality enhancement and quality assurance in the form of nine components.
