University of Languages and International Studies (ULIS) completed the peer quality assessment for French and Chinese language training programs
From November 15th – 17th, 2016, ULIS held the peer quality assessment for French and Chinese language training programs.
French and Chinese language training programs are two traditional training programs (TPs) of ULIS. Within the plan of ensuring the education quality of VNU and ULIS, these two TPs are assessed in terms of their quality in accordance with the set of standards of the Circular No. 04/2016/TT-BGDDT issued on March 14th, 2016 by Mr. Bui Van Ga, Deputy Minister of Education and Training. The set of standards include 11 standards and 50 criteria. ULIS has had 10 TPs assessed in terms of their quality in conformity to the standards of AUN, MoET and peer-evaluation. These are the 11th and 12th TP of ULIS assessed in terms of their quality.
Self-assessment councils (SACs) of Chinese and French language TPs were established by the Decision No. 896/QĐ-ĐH dated on April 11th, 2016 of ULIS’s President. The self-assessment and preparation for peer-assessment is an opportunity for ULIS to look back its TPs, thereby pointing out its strengths and weaknesses to improve the training quality to meet the requirements of high-quality human resource of society.
After a 5-year implementation, the reports on self-assessment of the two TPs have been finalized, evaluated, internally accepted, amended and submitted to VNU Institute for Education Quality Assurance (IEQA). After receiving feedback from IEQA, the report on peer-assessment has been finalized.
After that, two groups of experts for peer-assessment of IEQA were formed in accordance with the Decision No. 3516/QĐ-ĐHQGHN issued on November 4th, 2016 by VNU’s Vice-Director Nguyen Duc Huu. The expert group for quality peer-assessment of French language led by Dr. Hoang Xuan Hoa and the expert group for quality peer-assessment of Chinese language led by Dr. Tran Thi Hoai conducted a two-day evaluation at ULIS.
Starting in November 15th, 2016, the two groups examined documents, facilities and interviewed Board of Management, Directors of functional Offices, Dean Boards of Faculty of Chinese Language and Culture and Faculty of French Language and Culture, report writers, lecturers, staff, students and alumni of the two faculties and employers.
The closing ceremony of quality peer-assessment of Chinese and French languages was held on November 17th, 2016 after three effective working days.
