Quality System

The University of Music refers to the Quality System of the Foundation Conservatorio della Svizzera italiana and to the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI).

The SUPSI Quality Assurance System consists of:

  • The Quality Policy and Strategy (QPS) which describes the basic principles related to the development and management of quality within the SUPSI.
  • The Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) which defines the outlines, including organisational and management, of the Quality assurance system.
  • The Quality Handbook (QH) which collects and describes in detail the key processes considered a priority for the School and the operating methods of the Quality Assurance System for each of them. In order to take into account the specificities of the affiliated schools, there is a specific variant of QHs for each.

Then Quality Handbook CSI-SUM (only in Italian) is a variation of the Quality Handbook SUPSI.


The study programmes of the University of Music of the Conservatorio have been reviewed according to the MusiQuE standards in 2018. Please find the report here.
