Institutional Self-Evaluation Report (ISER) Submitted
The ISER was developed following a comprehensive self evaluation process enabled through university-wide engagement. It is the core document used by the Review Team to assess the effectiveness of quality assurance at UCC. The chapters of the ISER examine the strategic context of UCC, the quality of teaching, research and support services, internal quality assurance governance, procedures, areas of good practice and areas for enhancement.
Looking ahead to 2023
- The Planning Site Visit will take place; February 2023
- The CINNTE Site Visit will take place on UCC Campus ; 6 - 10 March 2023.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have generously contributed their time and expertise throughout the year, especially the members of the IRG, Chapter Leads and Institutional Profile Team. From all in the QEU, we wish you a Peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
