Aim of the Quality Manual
The aim of the quality manual is to describe the processes used in the Faculty of Humanities to attain the vision and mission as stated above and thus ultimately comply with the Quality Policy of the NWU (Quality) which states:

 “Academic quality is best guaranteed when responsibility for it is located as closely as possible to the academic processes of teaching, learning, research and community engagement and it is maintained and enhanced through the professional commitment of staff and students. Quality assurance is a continuous, active and responsive process. Everyone at the NWU needs to be dedicated to continuous improvement.”
