Faculty of Kinesiology

The Faculty of Kinesiology has an internal quality assurance system for the entirety of its work and activities. The aim of quality assurance and quality improvement is to build institutional mechanisms designed to systematically promote quality and achieve the highest level of quality in the educational, scientific-research, professional and administrative activities of the Faculty.

The purpose of the quality assurance system at the Faculty is to establish the principles, criteria and methods of quality assurance, taking into account the provisions of the Act on Quality Assurance in Science and Higher Education, as well as the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education.

The Faculty has a Committee for Quality Management, which coordinates the internal quality system with the activities of the Quality Management Office and the Committee for Quality Management of the University of Zagreb, the Agency for Science and Higher Education and the Ministry of Science and Education and with the internal and external stakeholders in the quality assurance of the Faculty.

The members of the Committee are members of the teaching staff, representatives of non-teaching staff, students and the president of the Croatian Kinesiological Federation. In its work, the Committee establishes, coordinates and implements quality assurance and quality improvement activities at the Faculty. 

The basic documents under which the Committee for Quality Management operates are also available on the
websites and consist of the following:

Orientation towards the establishment, implementation and maintenance of the Quality Management System is further confirmed by the Faculty's ISO certificates. The Faculty has had a Quality Management System certificate according to the requirements of the standard ISO 9001: 2008 since 2014, and in 2018 it transitioned to the standard ISO 9001: 2015 for which the Certificate for teaching and research in the field of kinesiology was acquired.

Several members of the teaching and non-teaching staff of the Faculty attended various training courses in the field of quality assurance according to the requirements of the ISO standard. They obtained a certificate for conducting internal audits and in various ways participated in promoting the culture of quality in the work environment.
