The LQL-Review is a many-layered process in which both internal and external experts are involved. The goal is not just securing the high quality of the study programmes, taking into account both the University’s framework specifications as well as external specifications of the Accreditation Council, the Conference of Culture Ministers and the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG), but also qualitatively developing the study programmes within the framework of a discursive process.

Leibniz Quality in Teaching – LQL-Review: tasks and responsibilities (in German)

The following are important components of the LQL-Review:

  • the self-report (LQL-Report) of the evaluation units (clusters), which, alongside the study programme profiles and relevant study programme documents (e.g., exam regulations, module catalogues) contains, in particular, self-reflection on the evaluation unit's strengths and weaknesses

  • the quality assessment for the study programmes, and, in particular, the development of recommendations for further quality development by internal and external experts

  • the conferral of the LQL seal, if the quality of the study programmes has been confirmed – subject to certain conditions, as the case may be

  • the voluntary commitment of the evaluation units to engage in further quality development, which goes beyond the fulfilment of formal criteria

Handouts and presentations LQL-Review

There is a range of handouts and presentations regarding the procedures of the LQL-Review, the involvement of external experts and the composition of the LQL-Report. These can be viewed in the (internal) employee portal under the heading "LQL-Programme".
