The University of Greifswald is committed to the principle that research and teaching are one. It is eager to offer its students an excellent education at the highest academic level. At the same time, it is committed to continually developing the courses offered on a qualitative and quantitative basis.  This task is demanding for the teaching staff and the students, but also for the academic self-government and the administration.

Using the regular evaluation of teaching events, studying conditions and course organisation as a basis, the quality of the courses on offer can be secured and improved. The University promotes the development of the subject knowledge and teaching skills of its teaching staff and the training in and implementation of effective forms of teaching and learning.
