Higher education institutions in South Africa, both public and private, have accepted that quality assurance is an integral part of their core business, namely: teaching and learning, community engagement and research. The establishment of the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) of the Council on Higher Education (CHE) is expected by law to work with quality assurance and promotion offices in institutions of higher education to ensure, support, develop and monitor quality assurance processes.Hence UNIZULU has the Academic Planning and Quality Division (APQ) which is tasked with discharging quality functions according to the Higher Education Act of 1997 and the South African Qualifications Authority Act which created the legislative basis for quality assurance processes in higher education.
The University’s Academic Planning and Quality Division prepares and assists faculties in setting up quality mechanisms by:
- Providing information which supports and advances the strategic objectives of UNIZULU;
