The Quality Assurance of Finnish Higher Education

FINEEC, the Finnish Education Evaluation Centre, was established on 1 May 2014 by merging FINHEEC, the Finnish Higher Education Evaluation Council, the Finnish Education Evaluation Council and the evaluation of education undertaken by the Ministry of Education and Culture.


The Finnish Education Evaluation Centre (FINEEC) is the national quality assurance agency
responsible for evaluations of higher education in Finland. FINEEC is a full member of the European
Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and is included in the European Quality
Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR).

An audit is an independent and systematic external evaluation. It assesses whether the quality system of a
higher education institution is fit for purpose and functioning and whether it complies with the agreed criteria.
An audit focuses on the procedures that the institution uses to maintain and develop the quality of its operations.

One of the main principles of the FINEEC audit is the autonomy of higher education institutions (HEI), also
stated in the Finnish Universities Act and Polytechnics Act: the HEIs are responsible for the quality and
continuous development of their education and other operations. Another guiding principle of the audits is
enhancement-led evaluation. The aim is to help HEIs to identify strengths, good practices and areas in need of
development in their own operations.
