The rules for International Olympiad Competitions have also been changed. Registration for these competitions ends on November 15.
From its very inception, our University has always paid special attention to the quality of teaching. Getting feedback on how you assess the studied courses and the work of your teachers is an important part of quality evaluation. Programme leadership need to understand how successful individual courses are, and if their syllabuses should be modified. Teachers use evaluation results and recommendations to learn if the course requires adjustments and to plan its further development.
