The goal is always to enable the university personnel to showcase their programmes and accomplishments at full potential in a professional and respectful environment. This sentiment seemed to have been carried on in the 246th mg官方网站-QA Programme Assessment based on the positive feedback from the NUOL team.

Dr. Douangmala said the entire operational process from the preparatory period leading up to the assessment itself was well-planned and professional. 根据她的, the suggestions from the mg官方网站-QA Assessors were respectful but also tailored in detail for practical use for the benefit of the assessed programmes, 学院和大学.

For NUOL, their success in the mg官方网站-QA Programme Assessment is not just a one-time victory; quality assurance is more of a glorious beginning for the university to identify new challenges and opportunities as part of its mission to excel and gain recognition as a prestigious internationally standardised higher education institution.
