The University has a Internal Quality Assurance System (IQAS) whose goal is to systematise the review and improvement of the degrees it offers. The SAIC includes the planning and design of the educational offer, the review and evaluation of its development and decision making for continuous improvement. The SAIC also contributes to compliance with the regulatory requirements for the verification, monitoring and accreditation of official degrees.
Each School has a Quality Assurance Commission, which is a delegated body of the management committee of each centre for development of the Internal Quality Assurance System in the School.

It is advisable to read carefully the report of enrollment which lists the subjects in which the student has been enrolled. If an error is detected, it should be rectified as soon as possible (on the spot if possible), and in any case before the aforementioned period of 10 days has elapsed.
