Quality of teaching
We are in the early phases of a period of profound academic innovation, whose initial results (.pdf file) are still being analysed. Monitoring and analysing these changes will help us maintain the high teaching standards of the faculty, by getting the best out of our teaching staff and developing an environment in which students can choose the course most suited to their own abilities and which will motivate them to develop a clear vision of their professional future.
