A good story

The Quality Management Directorate (QMD) has a good story to tell, one with many facets, one that has a central focus: Quality - and the assurance, monitoring, enhancement of quality at MUT.




What is Quality?

Quality…you know what it is, you recognise it when you see it, yet you don‘t know how to define it … is a remark often heard in discussions. In Higher Education, we find that given the complexity of the idea of quality, there is no single definition to describe its meaning. One of the more common definitions is that quality means that a university must be fit for its purpose – in other words, it must be able to do what it aims to do.
