The Commission for Academic Affairs advises on fundamental matters of study and teaching. It prepares the Senate's resolutions on framework examination regulations as well as the establishment, amendment and cancellation of study programmes. It also examines the examination regulations adopted by the faculties, taking into account the applicable (external and internal) guidelines and agreements, the feasibility of the course offerings in terms of capacity and their coherence in terms of content. The commission advises on questions of quality development of studies and teaching and prepares the Senate's resolution on quality assurance procedures and measures.
