You can familiarize yourself with our quality system in the operational quality manual, which gives an overview of the activities and quality management of the Police University College. The operational quality manual makes the Police University College’s activities visible to personnel, students, stakeholders and partners as well as anyone interested in the University College.

The Police University College’s quality system has been audited by the Finnish Education Evaluation Centre, which concluded that it meets the national standards for higher education institutes’ quality management as well as European principles and recommendations.
