Research Integrity

Independent bodies ensure that suspected cases of research misconduct are investigated in accordance with national and international standards.

Good Teaching

The University of Bonn adopted an Evaluation Policy (EvaLS) that uses operational feedback to manage the quality assurance procedures for study and teaching. Systematic analysis, quality assurance and quality improvements are used with the aim of achieving defined study objectives and ensuring that study progresses in as “orderly” a fashion as possible.
