Strategy Department of Education & Research

The Strategy Department of Education & Research (SER) assists the Board of the University, other departments and the faculties with developing and implementing strategic policy on education, innovation, quality assurance, students, research funding and internationalization of education at the UG. An important focus of the department is to support the Board and the faculties with ensuring a high level of quality of the education and optimizing every stage of the process of delivering education to UG students. All of SER's responsibilities are performed in close collaboration with its partners within and outside of the University.

Our educational vision focuses on establishing strong links between students and staff, between teaching and research and between teaching and relevant social issues in national and international contexts. We believe that talent and potential flourish most in a close-knit academic community that imparts, generates, exchanges and integrates knowledge, a community that inspires its members to develop their academic knowledge, interests and talents to the full.

The department can be separated in seven different categories, all working towards achieving the Education Goals as set out in the Strategic Plan 2015-2020. These categories are:

  • Educational Strategy
  • Institutional Quality Assurance
  • Institutional Research
  • Funding Team (Research Funding)
  • Assistance of Advisory Committees, Faculties and Departments
  • Educational Innovation
  • Public Education
