Centre for Quality Assurance – CQA

To promote a culture of quality assurance and to ensure high quality in the total educational experience offered by the university to its students Internal Quality Assurance Unit of the University of the Visual and Performing Arts was established in 2015, in complying with the University Grants Commission circular. Later, for further strengthening of internal quality assurance system within the University, according to the University Grants Commission Circular No. 09/2019, the Center for Quality Assurance (CQA) of the University of the Visual & Performing Arts was established to coordinate all QA related activities within the University. In this process, all the members of staff must take personal responsibility for ensuring the quality of their contribution to enhance the students’ learning experience.

The CQA of the University of the Visual & Performing Arts oversees that quality is assured in all its degree programs of faculties and units. The CQA ensures that the University of the Visual & Performing Arts operates in conformity with the Sri Lankan Qualification Framework, Subject Benchmark Statements and other standards set forth by the Quality Assurance Council and the University Grants Commission of Sri Lanka. The faculty-level QA activities are administered by the Faculty’s Internal Quality Assurance Cells.

The Director heads the CQA, to plan, organize, develop, facilitate and monitor all Internal Quality Assurance programmes and activities. The governing body of the CQA is the Senate Standing Committee for Quality Assurance chaired by the Vice-Chancellor of the University.
