The University of Kufa monitors and provides feedback on the performance of its students and staff members. This takes place on an annual basis to enable the University to constantly evaluate its academic progress and to effect changes necessary to optimize the quality of its programme provision, delivery and assessment. It includes analyses by a team of specialized experts of questionnaires completed by students and which include comment on programme delivery and the performance of teaching staff. The progress of each student cohort is monitored and regular guidance and assistance is provided at the level of the individual student. This quality assurance and enhancement process, which is in accordance with best international practice, has been introduced in order to assure and enhance academic quality in the University.
