The team will base their findings on the self-assessment dossiers and the evidence that DTU has submitted for evaluation, based on the 10 standards and 61 criteria set by the MOET. The objective of the evaluation and the quality assessment is to identify, together with the university, which strengths should be exploited and which weaknesses should be overcome. We hope that the university’s leadership, staff and lecturers will actively support our team, that the evaluation will take place on schedule, and that our discussions will lead to even stronger educational development at DTU.”
