The University of Göttingen was officially inaugurated inthree years after teaching commenced here, by King George II of Great Britain, Prince-Elector of Hanover. Today, the university which bears his name, Georg-August, is one of the most highly regarded German universities and recognised worldwide for its leading research work as well as being highly attractive to outstanding academics and students both at home and abroad.

As a university that follows in the tradition of the Enlightenment, it actively, skillfully, imaginatively and conscientiously makes a valuable contribution to academic progress and to tackling the challenges that face society in the 21st Century. The strength of the University of Göttingen lies — now as at the time of its foundation — in realising the aspiration to combine reason and knowledge pragmatically. As a classical university it aims to build new bridges between disciplines in research and teaching.

The University of Göttingen is committed to providing forward-looking, innovative teaching based on high quality research, with the aim of educating critical and cosmopolitan academics who can make a special contribution to the intellectual progress and sustainable development of our society.

Taking a lively interdisciplinary approach, the University promotes the capacity to make judgements and evaluate critically which are essential for personal development and academic success. It is distinguished not only by the variety of subjects covered by its thirteen faculties especially Humanitieswhich have over 31, students, but also by its excellent science facilities and the outstanding quality of its research in high-profile areas.

The University has successfully pursued well-established measures to further its positive development in research and teaching. A core element of the area of research and teaching is Göttingen Campuswhich unites the University of Göttingen in an energetic partnership with eight excellent extramural research institutions. In research and teaching the university has taken up the challenges of the developing European Higher Education Area: it is intensifying its academic work, continually improving teaching, driving forward internationalisation, and strengthening its comprehensive plans for equal opportunities and diversification.

With its thirteen faculties, including the Göttingen University Medical Centre, the University of Göttingen offers students a broad range of subjects that enables research-based studies. Offering 90 academic subjects means that about 1, combinations are possible for Bachelor degrees alone.

Promotion of excellence and a practical research approach are offered by the University on its many Master and Doctorate degrees — a range which is continually expanding. The degree programmes provide students with specialised and methodical skills and key competencies, preparing them for work both within and outside academia, and are practical and research oriented at every stage of studies.

Doctoral studies in Göttingen are organised in structured programmes, which are pooled in four graduate schools : Georg-August University School of Science GAUSS ; Göttingen Graduate School of Social Sciences GGGGraduate School of Humanities Göttingen GSGG and Graduate School of Forest Sciences and Agricultural Sciences GFA. Part of the Georg-August University School of Science is the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences GGNB.

This renowned graduate school is supported jointly by the University, three Max Planck institutes and the Deutsche Primatenzentrum DPZ. It comprises twelve doctoral degree programmes. The GGNB, which since has received funding under the Excellence Initiative of the Federal and State governments, was once again successful in the second round of the Excellence Initiative of the Federal and State governments in and will continue to receive support.

The graduate schools provide the organisational superstructure for postgraduate programmes, doctoral degree programmes and the International Max Planck Research Schools. The objective of the graduate schools is to improve the conditions of research and study for PhD students and to promote the development of excellent researchers with intensive support and seminars. Starting from its quality in research and teaching and its international orientation, the University has declared its objectives to include both the realisation of equal opportunities and staff diversity.

Based on its quality in research and teaching and an international orientation, the university has declared its goals to be the realisation of equal opportunities, the ability to combine degree studies with caring responsibilities, and allowance for diverse backgrounds and life situations. To this end it is developing an organisational structure and culture oriented towards equal opportunities and diversity, and an approach to diversity that focuses on abilities and is sensitive to discrimination.

This was affirmed by its inclusive and transformative Diversity Strategy PDF, German, KB in The University of Göttingen and the Ministry of Lower Saxony for Science and Culture regularly agree targets to ensure that the strategic and substantive goals of the University are continually met and adapted to new challenges and needs.

The University of Göttingen is a leading research university with high standards in research and teaching and an outstanding international reputation. As a result it places great importance on the quality of teaching and learning and is strongly committed to providing a high quality, research-based, forward-looking and innovative education as well as excellent study conditions for the 30, students currently enrolled on a total of degree programmes.

An explicit focus on research, high standards of teaching, and systematic allowance for the diversity of students contribute to every student being enabled to achieve their best in their studies. Besides the general task of ongoing quality assurance, the University has also taken on the challenge of establishing a functioning quality management system for teaching and learning, one that matches its public profile and ambitions at the same time as responding to the demands of the accreditation process.

A key part of this, therefore, is the creation and permanent establishment of systematic quality assurance procedures in accordance with the standards applicable within the European Higher Education Area. This guide on quality management in teaching and learning is part of the quality management system of the University of Göttingen, and is based on the description of core processes in the area of teaching and learning. The guide documents quality assurance procedures and measures in place at the University of Göttingen in order to make them transparent to all involved: students, teaching staff and other employees.

The first of the three main sections of the guide presents the structure of the university — in particular in the area of teaching and learning. The second section focuses on the quality assurance tools used in teaching and learning, whilst the third explains the measures and strategies which have been established as part of quality assurance. The final section of the QM guide describes in detail the various systems and processes in teaching and learning and ends with an outline of plans for development of the quality management system in relation to teaching and learning.
